The Hourglass Issue

Dear reader

here-in: the hourglass issue;

the effect time has on you;

how it and you are ‘twine

here-on will test your eye-sight [there is a lot of small text]

where image, prose, thought just might

spur questions in like kind.

so read, scan and ponder,

upon content of times yonder;

the contributors’ resplendent list

the hourglass becomes a symbol,

an object which asks;

“after all, does the present exist?”

    This is great – particularly like the poetic editorial. More of that please!
    Also, I enjoyed reading some of O’Kane’s essays. Quite the scholar he is, and he managed to reference Walter Benjamin, Duchamp and Hokusai in one piece. Kudos for that.
