Silkworm 13: Luck is here!

 Thank you to all of our contributors from around the globe! 
Silkworm 13 was produced in a pandemic, and we like to think
reading these poems may be a small antidote. Enjoy!

Silkworm 12 is dedicated to the memory
of fierce poets and friends,

Martina Robinson and Teri O'Shea
