Graced by Gil Ott's subtle cover collage of a Japanese-calligraphied whale swimming in a steno-pad of fluid handwriting, this beautifully edited issue features a selection from Elena Rivera's "Wale: or, the Corse," inspired by Melville's Moby Dick and Charles Olson's Call me Ishmael, as well as the way "whale" disintegrated in the echo to "wale," which are welts that rise up after a lash. Jenny Gough's "two poems" resonate, with "what better way to underscore the/ flower than allow the blister to appear in the light of stamps."--Susan Smith Nash
