Weekend Roundup Rumpus


First, in the Saturday Essay, the search for love winds through cities and settles in unexpected spaces in Meghan O’Dea’s “Everything We Ever Needed.”

Meanwhile, our very own Comics Editor Brandon Hicks shares “three things” from his drawing table in “Triple Bill.”

Finally, Sunday Rumpus Poetry celebrates Gwendolyn Brooks’s centennial with four poems from Revise the Psalm, a newly published collection of Brooks’s work, life, and activism edited by Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku.
