Jennifer Bartlett was a 2005 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow. 
Her first collection of poetry, /Derivative of the Moving Image/, was 
published last year by the University of New Mexico Press in their Mary 
Burritt Christiansen poetry series. More recently, she curated "This 
Condensery: On Poetry and Mentorship" in the current issue of /How2/.

Sam Lohmann moved to Portland from Olympia, Washington last fall. He 
edits a yearly poetry zine called Peaches and Bats, and has 
self-published several chapbooks, most recently Parks and Unless As 
Stone Is.


The Unbroken Line

in the desert sky
stars and stars and stars

I imagine how we might
go on forever
a black mass, fluttering

the crippling trees bowed
toward the bending house

a spring snow is merely to be expected

— Jennifer Bartlett
from /for lee/

Perch, easy mischief, crisp yellow
a lover'd see: vie out a vestigial verity,

pose an arbor herbal, choose
a fugitive peony, percolate perpetual
scamper at a coat-tail, be sole
pervader, leave any star all umbrage, aim us
erratic in trapeze, peal forte,

in eldritch tempo belch amor.

— Sam Lohmann
from Unless As Stone Is
