It’s spring here in flyover country, finally.  Some of the bulbs didn’t make it past the last mid-April freeze, and the pear blossoms littered the ground like snow.  It’s been quite a journey during our first year—and this third issue feels like triumph.  The poems in this collection resonate with a turmoil that’s shared during these uncertain times, each poet wrestling with some moment, some role.  There’s humor here, too, hopefulness that echoes the belated season, and a tireless pursuit to remain authentic to personal experience.  As we at River City Poetry start to expand, we want to continue to celebrate poetry worth sharing.
