Volume 1.2 of Blood Orange Review is now available.
17th century haiku poet Chigetsu has a poem that seems similar to how I felt while compiling the new issue of Blood Orange Review:
Bush warbler: I rest my hands in the kitchen sink.
Often, we move through our day forcefully--rushing, pushing, and working to finish everything we need to finish. But the submissions that arrived in my mailbox over the last month were like Chigetsu's birdsong; they made me pause and listen.
Leave the dishes in the sink: they won't go anywhere.
