Mom Egg Review Vol.14

Welcome to Mom Egg Review Vol. 14! This issue explores “Change.”

Change can be a lightning bolt, a bud’s unfurling, or the inexorable melt of ice caps. A body swells with pregnancy, bends with illness, shrinks with age; a couple evolves or severs; a child slowly cycles through a myriad of incarnations. Or tornado, bomb, gunshot.

Change is acute and cyclical, rhythmic and cataclysmic, personal and political, abstract and physical, natural and un-, absolute and incremental, often too gradual or too precipitous.

Change is not just one-directional flow, something that happens to us; we can affect its course, embrace, finesse, challenge, or stem it. Mothers often serve as society’s first responders and interlocutors of change for children and, often, others. There is also change that we make. Mothers effect change by example and by action, by our works—life and art.

The works in this issue look unblinkingly at change; they investigate, interrogate, and even implement change, local and global. Enjoy the frank, thoughtful, and powerful poems and stories in this issue. May they inspire you to create the good changes needed in your world.
