“Third Arm”

by Ginger Strand

In Milwaukee Alice decides to leave her husband. She does it in a time-tested way, by beginning an affair with someone else. She has had affairs before, and Noel has always taken them to be proof of his particularly enlightened worldview. This time he takes it personally, because he can tell that she means it as the end.


by Carol Frost

Grief again, the turntable left on                                                                 
and the needle set at the beginning                                                                 
of our song before the rebuff, you gone . . .
