BEAUTIFUL 

OPEN PRAIRIE

EDITED BY SERENA SOLIN

The purpose of this folio is to document in poetry our strange and simultaneous lives in the states of Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Minnesota. Here you'll find poems of wide roads, sprawling superstores, crumbling buildings, small blue cities, and church communities, of being the only person you see walking.
