In the Vol. 4, No. 2 issue of the Maynard we are pleased to bring you work by Judy Shepps Battle, Joan McNerney, David R Morgan, George Moore, Shazia Hafiz Ramji, and Colleen Webber.

Take the time, in this belated month of June, to enjoy some of the words from the poets featured this month. Let the words, and the summer, unfold to you at their own pace; step into their space, but tread carefully so you don't muddy them with the baggage on your soles. Waer a light rain coat if you must to keep the dampness at bay. Your shoes at this time, like your mind, should be light and flexible, but always sturdily prepared for what's next.
