Overview

This is a different kind of anthology. One bound together solely by the descanso, regardless of the genre or form of the piece. The poetry, flash fiction, essays, and short stories contained here are as varied as the theme they represent. From San Francisco to New Zealand to Greece, from a soldier saying goodbye to her helicopter to a musician in small town Texas whose life has just begun, to a woman taking supplies to the Water Protectors at Standing Rock, these pieces reflect their authors’ unique takes on themes of grief and love and sudden redirection.
