Magazine Stand 2021-10

Cutleaf – Issue 1 Volume 19

In this issue Erika Veurink takes us on a tragic, and perhaps painfully humorous, first date with two people whose interest in each other simply don’t match in “Five Hours Ahead.” Diane Payne recounts ways isolation makes simple trips to the dentist or the grocery fraught in the short essay “The New You.” And Ralph Sneeden asks, “Where is the middle / distance of history” in four poems beginning with “Skiff Hill.” The images in this issue are from a 1921 illustrated guide to figure skating by Swedish skating champion Bror Myer.
