Here is the poem which opens the issue, by Blair Cooper:
Like a rubber band taut between pegs,
I contemplate how to rank endeavors
in the order of importance, things
that matter most or not at all, how to fit
everything in between the ticking seconds.
Shall I begin now to write a poem,
make a loaf of rye bread, read ten pages,
knit another row? Lying awake in bed,
I see prominent Jupiter through the skylight
and the light pinpricks of distant stars.
Time no longer seems so brittle. Things
I attempt fade into the dark timelessness.
Perhaps catching falling leaves
has as much value, leaves, transitory as I.
