Really cool journal based out of Manchester, England.


  1. "Tumbling, tumbling -- this is the gymnastics of it all. The pommel horse, the rings, and trampolines, the cartwheels and spring vaults -- this is such a lonely circus. I should find that naked clown-less clown, and tell him, tell him that he does have a place to sleep."

    LOVELY. The "does" puts a little bump in the rhythm, like in "To me the meanest flower that blows / Can give thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears."

  2. Thanks, Molly--you rule. Such a lovely quote--had to look it up. Wordsworth. It has been such a long time since, but now I'll have to study his work again. Thanks again.
