AMY DUPCAK

In the city of Corundum, a person’s voice is not his own. Above every Corundum native is a being that waits for its cue to speak.

Evidence of Self
AMANDA MILLER
Poem: Mirrors and recognition in the eyes of others seem to confirm that I am a living, breathing entity. When I look down, I can see my body extending to the floor in the space below my neck.

Indecision
MOLLY RECTOR
Poem: The cat sits outside the bedroom door, crying,

Each night, I am to roll out of bed, answer the door,
wait for him to decide: in or out?
