Field Notes from a Pandemic: Call of the Killdeer
Ben Miller

For more than two years, to perpetuate the writing life, I have worked as a support specialist--or secretary--in a small (one doctor, two nurse) twenty-four-hour telehealth ICU unit that ordinarily assists the ICU staff at thirty-four small hospitals spread across the Midwest.

Cats and the Existential Struggle of French Philosophy
Andy Martin
One day in the spring of 1961, Claude Lévi-Strauss and Roman Jakobson met in Paris to extinguish poetry.

Two Poems
Stephanie Burt

Someone will probably love you for who you are,
If not, you'll still find friends,
friends who, given time, or given warning,
will probably gather around you, hold your hands,
and wrap you in soft coats and blankets till the violence
inside your body ends.
