Editor's Notes : Volume 1, Issue 1 by Matt Mason
published in Volume 1, Issue 1 on January 15th, 1994

Sitting here looking over the finished copy of the illustrious first ever issue of The Morpo Review, certain thoughts cross my mind such as "I hope someone actually reads this," "I really need a shower," and "People need to mellow out and write more funky poetry." I kind of have a beef about that last statement (no puns intended on the cow poems contained in this issue) as I open anthologies and National Book Award winning books of poems and stuff like that and as much as I'm impressed by the dour elegance of it all, I'd really like to see a few more poems about cows or which dare to be witty, mildly unbalanced, or wildly hilarious in ways that truly make my fanny tingle. Granted, though, you're here to read poems and stories rather than listen to some cranky old editor up past his bedtime ramble on and on about his tingling tush, so with no or at least very little further ado, I present to you, The Morpo Review!
