“Deviled Eggs”

by Jill Noel Kandel

Since the autopsy showed no wound present—this was not always the case; previously in similar murders there had been wounds—the death was reportedly caused by the bewitched smoke emitted from the gun. The evidence, deemed credible by the Kalabo District Court, created no real commotion, and the judge accepted it into court documentation.


“Black People Can’t Swim”

by Douglas Goetsch

When I told Patricia how much I loved the pool at the Y,

“Happy Hour”

by Bob Hicok

A rabbi, priest, and belly dancer walk into a bar.

when they’re in one. . . .


“Particulate Matter”

by Rebecca Lehmann

Beware the dingle, its leftward leaning light.
Do I feel like a fever?
The bruises on my legs, desire them.
To be scapular is to reach out.
