Two Poems in Salt Hill Journal

Two poems, “Ravel v. Unravel” and “Birthday Cake or Ice Cream” by Rachel Morgan appear in Salt Hill Journal 36.  The editors David Gustavsen, Abbey Numedahl, and Rachel Wakefield say of issue 36, “Perhaps this issue, with its yearnings, reachings, and failures of connection, is an attempt at shaking that human web. We hope that these stories and poems act as a vibration that you can feel, a reminder of our common ground.”
