The Choice
AMY DUPCAK
Fiction:Walked up to the roof three days before his birthday, on the periphery of summer. One flight, two, then two more. Paused at the door, encountering the familiar ‘Alarm will sound.’

Julian Variation
JUSTIN ENGLES
Poem: The house on the vacant lot next door burned down.
I know that this happens all over the city, men come
in the dark to set the abandoned structures alight

On A Roll
IRVING GREENFIELD
Fiction: And she was a looker. He was nineteen and because he was tall and sported a small well-trimmed beard, he often passed for someone in his twenties in the clubs he and his friends visited.

Trash
THEA ENGST

at our community. I always knew we had more
than others, I just didn’t know enough
