The End of the World by Mariam Parwez

All these people, telling me to choose Which day to pick from the setting of my moods Lifted the life and the breath we take To learn from our past, our biggest mistakes All these people they tell me to choose Which day to pick from the setting of the moon When an...

The Fall by Mark Aulet

The Colors of AIDNI by Farrah Lopez

Home Sickness by Nate Satin

The evening was playing out exactly as Ethan McCollum had hoped it would. He’d began the night with one goal, a mantra of sorts, which he’d repeated to the neatly-groomed image in the cabinet-mirror above his sink: Redeem Yourself. He had known that tonight, the night...
