        Close to each other,
        socially undistanced,

        the bamboo stand
        are? jungle babblers.

        but also the well of? the water styx he kept in a flask
        as he tried to end...

        By Maya C. Popa
        I can’t undo all I have done unto myself,
        what I have let an appetite for love do to me.

        I have wanted all the world, its beauties
        and its injuries; some days,
        I think that is punishment enough.

        Often, I received more than I’d...
