Jay Aquinas Thompson on Valerie Mejer Caso’s This Blue Novel
the sky—a womb stung / by countless golden bees.
This series is created with the intention of celebrating contemporary Native American poets and extending their reach to an ever-widening circle of readers. Produced quarterly, this torchlight series will pass the fire among emerging and established poets, to share in conversation and to illuminate the diversity of styles and voices among Native poets writing today.

We were almost back to normal
Strange shadows are everywhere / and everywhere there are traps.
drones are dead by win- / ter. workers / never / finish.
Carolyne Wright on Words from the Café: an Anthology
“So much of the world / holds itself at a distance”
“lost / in the field / waiting / for human life / to reenter”
