Welcome to the first edition of Other Rooms online poetry journal where you can enjoy a birdsong, spend the night in St. Cloud and operate on history's kidney; date a centaur and love a vole as you glance at the week. Read about a mother, the general and a true gentleman. A wist and a bad omen; a legend falls. Plus: poems from forthcoming ORP chapbooks by V.L. Bond and L. Sze. Please enjoy your time in Other Rooms and consider submitting for the next edition.
