For Maya 1. ABOVE The reason Jamie moved away from the comfortable two-story brick nest hed grown up in wasnt because a twenty-six-year-old ought not to still have his mother doing his laundry, cooking his meals, and chastising him for bedroom mess. In fact, those things and even the same tired, ridiculous arguments replayed nightly between his parents, were an ideal tonic, with a sweet taste of normality. Comfortable, familiar. Stifling too, but so are bandages and splints. Hed been through ...

E.C. Stever NON METALLIC Nonmetallic The metal-man wore a thin coat, ignorant of the winter wind that tore the heat from the rest of us. When I saw him, I wanted to rush over, punch him on the arm, tell him to put on his winter clothes like everybody else. Only I didnt do that. I just watched him walk. It was snowing in circles that day. The cat had gotten out, brushing past my skirt and jumping over our fence before I could even yell her name. Mom said I had better go fetch her because of the ...

Silent. She didnt even seem to be surprised. I was surprised. I hadnt planned to do it. Usually when you hear about this kind of thing, it is the 1950s, and the husband comes home drunk to his slovenly wife from the pub and finds that his dinner is cold.

Jonathan A. Taylor MEYER-HOFMANN AG 1 Crouched in the boat, two figures surveyed the island coastline and prepared for their landing. The cloudless night sky filled the North Atlantic bay with moonlight. A dormant ocean swell heaved upwards, its smooth back broken by the bow wave of the small craft. The sound of the outboard motor, which coughed and sputtered through the cold water, was drowned out by waves breaking over a rapidly approaching shoreline. The light ground fog had been visible from ...
