“The Fullness Thereof”

by Barbara Goldberg

It’s hard to think of home without the hawthorn and the scat
of deer and mole. It’s hard to think of fall without the sight
of scurrying squirrels packing nuts into their cheeks, fearing
humans less than winter. . . .

“The Anniversary Trip”

by Victoria Lancelotta

They are sitting in a café on the Boulevard Saint-Germain, not far from the Odéon metro stop, three of them sitting, the wife with her husband, the husband with his mother, not inside the café but at one of the tables on the sidewalk where the prices are exorbitant but the view of the passing crowd is almost enough to counter this.


by Tim Nolan

We didn’t know where we were going—
except it would be cold. And not green.

“My Father’s Mistress”

by Barbara Goldberg

Had it been me, I would have chosen Lily Robinson
for her cigarette holder and thin Pall Malls, the only
one in the refugee circle who drew a beauty mark
next to her mouth, wore slinky black tuxedo pants
paired with a white satin blouse.
