    Great selection this week; Aditya Bahl’s “power failure” in particular.

    I agree Seren – a great set of poems. Aditya’s poem is a fav of mine as well. Steve Cottingham’s poem is another of my recent favorites. Although, every poem in this issue is really strong. Many thanks to all the poets.
