Songs I Sing to Myself
Some Mental Furniture (essay)

What we leave behind us, and how we face the new. Art and cover by Paul Katz vividly embody the impulse to recast materials and signs. Stories by Stephen Dixon, Victoria Lancelotta, and Shahriar Mandanipour look at how we preserve and renew, while reflective essays by Emilia Phillips, Laura Gill, and Michael Stein resonate with poems of loss and remembrance by Gail Mazur, Cate Lycurgus, Rick Bursky and many others.
