INTRODUCTION

Rose Lemberg. Silence to Speech.



POETRY

Ursula K. Le Guin. The Elders at the Falls
I heard this story. / They stood all day with their backs turned
Karen Neuberg. Fatigue of the Marionettes
We reached up, / fully expecting strings
Mary Alexandra Agner. Owl Woman
My lantern eyes are the last two / lights for miles
Tara Barnett. Star Reservation
Grandfather gave me a star for my fifth birthday

+++

C.W. Johnson. Towards a Feminist Algebra
Numbers are female, and the mathematicianís gaze / male
Samantha Henderson. The Gabriel Hound
Breathless and rounding an oak gnarled with years
William Doreski. Tortilla Soup
Watching you brew tortilla soup / in the bathtub amazes me
Amal El-Mohtar. Eshet Hayil
Your hands/ know a thousand alphabets, spell/ a witch's worth of magic
Emily Jiang. Self-Portrait
caught / between charge! / & fire:
Peer Dudda. Train Go Sorry
your silence silenced me

+++

J.C. Runolfson. Robert Cornelius Speaks a Dead Tongue
He might have / predicted the coming trend,
the vogue of corpses as ideal linguists
Shunit Mor-Barak. And There Was No Strange God with Him
Was that you? He asks the Word / and presses an earth-raw tongue
Sonya Taaffe. Domovoi, I Came Back!
What do you write with in a stranger's bed?
Shweta Narayan. Nagapadam
I hissed sibilants/ once, begged secrets of black-sand Naga mothers
