Intact
AMY DUPCAK
Fiction: The moon rushes into me, full force. We slam together: a collision to break the laws of physics. Then a wave of light laps my insides, electrifying cells, splintering ligaments, shaking the marrow from my bones.

The End of Your Myth
JUSTIN ENGLES
Poem: Lying in the motel bed he asked for help stretching a sore muscle, / so I rested his leg on my shoulder and leaned forward, one hand on his ankle, / the other on his thigh. It’s okay, you can push harder than that.

New Life
AMANDA MILLER
Fiction: Every morning I pray that Saul will write to me, just so I know he is alive. The not knowing is tearing me apart. Nurse Lacy keeps saying stress is bad for the baby.

Mud
ERIKA NICHOLS
Poem: we are undecided,
transforming in the spaces
between moments,
shapeshifting in shadows,
returning vaguely changed

No Entiendo
GABRIEL ZAPATA
Nonfiction: Born in Texas and of Mexican-American descent, I ought to know better. People expect me to speak Spanish as much as they expect anything, and when they find out the truth, usually by accident, more often than not I’m greeted with confusion.
