    I read these essays, poems, and reflections with jaw-dropping wonder. The reason I love poets, so? Especially Isaiah and Job, with whom each contributor of this issue stands in good company? Well, because the gaps in your well chosen words speak volumes of truth as do the words themselves. Words like enemy or lover or America or dandelion or spoon or Amichai or Ghazal draw me back to slip in and between their juxtapositions again and again. How nourishing!

    Thanks much! And thanks to all the contributors.
