  1. HEREDITARY DELUSIONS • by Rhonda Parrish 7 Comments

    The dust shone, trickled and danced in the moonlight blue, silver, blue a halo of miniscule stars surrounding him, settling on his shoulders, marring the perfect white of his perfect suit. I wanted him to be Mother’s visitor from the night she claims I was conceived– I thought he’d come from light years away, that […]


  2. IF A BLACK HOLE COULD • by Kenton K. Yee 2 Comments

      It’d be wishing a second bout to star as it deserves. It shone so bright and then burned out, a light of life that fed an earth. To star as it deserves, shining above water and flocks, a light of life that feeds an earth, an almighty that turns the clocks. Shining above water […]

  3. MEN ARE FROM SATURN • by Von Rupert 9 Comments

      Her house was the perfect earth I’d seen in satellite photographs. Ivory couches, pristine like the frozen North. Floors, the brilliant blue of a Pacific paradise. I was the alien. Feet heavy, smeared with Saturn’s green sludge. Hands black, dripping galaxy grease. There was no second date.   Von Rupert is a wife, mother, […]

  4. THE SAND FLEAS OF JUPITER • by F. Pierce Skinner 2 Comments

    When I am older, I will take out the sunburned neck I wore when I played the part of the stray and wonder what I would have done with all the hope I didn’t have while I was being lulled into a tepid rage watching horse-faced gods pollute the sky with maelstroms over the shore […]

  5. ALIEN SKIN CREME • by Rhonda Parrish 5 Comments

    They brought it back with them when they returned from the stars Packaged in a saucer-shaped jar of frosted glass no bigger than a baby’s fist the milky cream gleams, shimmers like wet nail polish, opalescent. Under the right light it seems to move. It only costs a fortune, and the potential, the hope for […]

      Everything that can happen does. She leaves work early as a crackhead jumps off a bus. A drunk runs a red light, barely.   She leaves work early. Her car doors did not lock. A drunk runs a red light, barely. Onto her backseat the crackhead hops.   Her car doors did not lock. Just […]

  8. ILLUMINATING THE CORE TEXT • by Kaolin Imago Fire 2 Comments

      Your mind an open canvas, I paint neurons with magic: broad strokes for coarse matters, swirling a palette of neurotransmitters that tickle and tease sparks down axons so-rarely traveled … Hallucinations ghost themselves along the optic nerve, playing will-they won’t-they left and right across your chiasm … You shudder with an induced religious ecstasy, […]

  9. BEILA FOX CLOSES THE RECYCLING OFFICE • by K.M. Praschak 3 Comments

    For three quick generations I’ve acted as Resident Recycler for the Glazed Moon Colony, reallocating furniture and secrets. Each object that lingers here stakes out a thin memory of human permanence for us, though Home’s AIs claim we’re a failure. A year ago, CoElla from 53rd Street brought in a slight, lacquered table first dented […]
