It's March, we're anticipating the equinox, and that means another quarterly issue of the art and literary magazine Star 82 Review has been released!
In Issue 2.1, we're looking for color in the spring. Or not. We can't help but notice new buds, bright sky, skin beginning to show again. Excitement, maybe, new beginnings, could be. Renewal of view, maybe vow. In the mirror we see something in our peripheral vision, a movement just out of sight. Or an alternate identity.
There's trouble. There's music. Graffiti, visions, pools filled and empty. We have a new poem, just written, by acclaimed poet Joanne Kyger, photos by Mary Daniel Hobson that look like tattoos, but aren't, photos of grotesques by Ron Nath, an erasure text from two pages of Frankenstein by Jønathan Lyons and so much more. We're unsure of ourselves, spinning, a little wobbly, trying out spring's new shoes. But our "ardent curiosity" pushes us forward.
