Communion and community. The body and blood. These are timeless themes, ones that have brought writers and artists together for centuries. In this issue, many of our contributors—and our poetry prize-winners—explore embodiment and disembodiment, the ties that bind and the ones that imprison. We see our common life through the eyes of a grave-digger, beauty in a moldering circus, and God under a sweetgum tree.
In this issue, our contributors ask us to acknowledge each other—to taste and see the life we share.
