Theme: Morbidity and Mortality

“Welcome to our morbidity and mortality issue. We have digging dead and walking dead, infection and fever, and a silverfish of doom. Our poets speak of haunted houses and ghost phones, strange vegetables and letters cored into bone, a whippoorwill’s cry and truth dissolved like clay.”
