Our Monthly E-Zine of Prose, Poetry, & Art

April 2014

By Joey Pizzolato

April is here, and with it, spring. Down in Texas, the wildflowers are in full bloom, painting the sides of highways and railroad tracks indigo and yellow and pastel orange. The air is cool, clean, and the sun is warm. My step, for one, is lighter.

With spring comes renewal. We yearn to spend more time outdoors, vow to eat better, get more exercise. Maybe walk our dogs more often. We clean our cars and homes of excess as we look forward. And as much as we’d like to wipe the slate clean—really start fresh—we cannot. Winter lingers.

This issue’s contributors perfectly embody Spring’s sentiment. Never in the six months I’ve been putting together Curbside’s monthly ezine has an issue so effortlessly come together. Henry Presente and Dan Crawley’s fiction touch masterfully on the little things we can do to be better, now; and Rose Hunter’s poems compliment the stories in a way I never could’ve planned. I like to think of them as what it looks like when the winter, and all that came before it, isn’t so easy to shake. I lived in Chicago for long enough to know what that feels like.
