The Bike Shop

Ed Granger

The plows have done their work and then some
as I coast the washboard lane to a bike shop
where the sign on the main road says I can also
purchase peach preserves and tractor parts.

Urgent Hymn

Margot Douaihy

The sonnet is a paradox: fixed yet flexible, consistent yet versatile. It’s one of the most lasting modes of literary expression, dating back to the 13th Century writer Francesco Petrarca. I’ve been thinking about sonnets a lot lately. As more animated gifs, emoticons, and emoji creep into daily life, supplanting not only words but complex feelings, what’s the sonnet’s role? What can Twitter bards and emerging writers learn from the conventions and puzzles of sonnets?
