In Like Company ed. James Cervantes

The Salt River Review & Porch Anthology.

“As the afternoon pulls tighter along the horizon, the crows keep at their business and I wonder if the intensity and timelessness of poetry itself could please these clever birds. Perhaps they are always reciting for us. Poems and stories may be clever, instinctual, ‘wellwrought,’ or mostly musical—but it’s always more than artifice; even the most despairing writing is made from, and of, life itself. “It is the child in us/ or outside us/harvesting the myth.” Those lines from ‘Interpretation of December’ are, in part, my path into this anthology; those children might be the writers, readers, the editors. It’s all three which both make and celebrate In Like Company.”
Pamela Stewart
