After the Revolution
JOY DONNELL
Poem: comes peacefulness. Inside, folks cling to
what they have now thanking God, luck,
bootstraps they'll eventually recast as legend.

Christmas Concert
GABRIEL ZAPATA
Fiction: We’re deep in the most solemn piece of the night, and I’ll be damned if I ruin this bliss with a sour note. There’s an audience here after all.

Song: The silence reminds me of all the dead things
in the air.  Hanging like Christmas ornaments
I never was attached to; never thought
it was lovely to come home to a porcelain elf
