With October so near, and still so warm, we bring you Kristen Iskandrian's exploration of the shapes of paper and glue, the hall smells, the return to the place where most of us have been and picked the carpet—school. As she reads from her ever growing project, The School, Iskandrian gives us a precise capture of the intense, mythical and scouring eye that such a place demands as it presents its pockets, wonders, and plain facts about function and future.

In the midst of September we are proud to bring you the work of poet Mark Leidner. It is difficult to describe Leidner's work without using the word "uncanny," and yet he begins so simply. His poems are deceptively conversational, as if talking to a friend at a bar or over the phone, but before you know it your brilliant friend has stopped kidding around and has lapsed into pure poetics. We hope you enjoy Mark Leidner's Apostrophecast.
