  • The Vessel, by Ingrid Schindall, was inspired by an old saying that the ocean invented land animals as a way to carry itself around on land. The poem contemplates the consequence of all life on land being an extension of the life in the ocean and the duty of land creatures, specifically humans in this case, to explore the land and see everything that we can.

  • Print Fool Fire Sale, by Sarah Michelle Rupert, is an anagram word play piece for printing fools. The title itself, an anagram of "Self-Proliferation" and the word bank spilling over the transparent page are words created soley from letters found in "Self-Proliferation."
