Art Feature

from Evidence of Time Past (essay)
A Trace

Traces found and brought to light. Disquieting images by cover and portfolio artist Sandra Brewster catch the mood of our times—a mood echoed throughout the issue in work by our most attuned and expressive writers. Stories by Uzma Aslam Khan and Kirstin Allio lay bare the subjective costs of separation, while Bailey Gaylin Moore and Donald Quist offer a unique and relevant dialogue-essay in “How to Speak to a Police Officer.” Other stories, essays, and hybrid pieces discover new urgencies in the perennial, while the energies of invention shine out from poems by Brittany Cavallaro, Benjamin Garcia, Cyrus Cassells, Shara McCallum, and many others.
