In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • It’s Time to Go In
  • Kathy Epling (bio)

The summer sun was bright sweet as licked candy those hot days Cooling our bodies in the green waters we closed our eyes. We believed even the sunlight loved us. All our games were dotted over with stars. We shone in each other's light & turned & turned our hurts minor & kissed away. It has been dark now for some time shadows taking our hands. One by one our friends are not here I can't see who it is, there, far in that cold shade, the golden leaves fallen all around, such tired children, who in that darkness calls us in.

Kathy Epling

Kathy Epling has had poems published in Denver Quarterly, North American Review, and Chicago Review, among others. She works as a poet and bookseller.
