  • Goodbye (Hello)

    by Ilyssa Goldsmith
    Goodbye (Hello) is a love letter to the stranger, the lover, and the beloved. It is a recovered poem written for the person we may meet once, perchance never to meet again. In her first poetry collection, Goldsmith re-imagines the fine line, which exists between all hellos and goodbyes. Here, the poet raises a new provocation—one which appears to be nostalgic and old. It is just this: every goodbye is secretly an unmet hello in disguise.

  • Sparks and Disperses

    by Cathleen Cohen
    The poems in Cathleen Cohen’s Sparks and Disperses reckon with contemporary life through the perspective of visual artists. Drawing on an ancient Kabbalistic myth of the “shattering of vessels,” Cohen explores issues of fracture, healing, and creation; the challenges of poverty, isolation, and the pandemic; and how we can find meaning and joy through artmaking. By building a poetic mural made of cracked ceramics, household items, and glass shards, Cohen promotes healing through continuity and ho... more
  • Maybe Colours

    by Matthew Bennett Young
    'Maybe Colours' is a meditation on possibilities and was the basis of a course developed in Sweden to support and specifically promote a new EQ curriculum (emotional intelligence) in schools there. It is a meditation on possibilities through the theme of having many sources of the 'same'.
