Last Call
these bars are all the same the hours pass by like a freight train speeding through Fargo North Dakota adolescent boys with stick-shift mentality between their legs de-feminized women hawking their wares, making that long walk home left feeling like a pirate walking a gangplank morning arriving like a blind man rattling an empty tin cup

KIRBY WRIGHT
Son of Crab
I am a sick man lying on a twin bed listening to rain. I have learned cold showers in a solar house inhabited by crabs. Father crab sits in a wheelchair clicking his remote. Mother crab devours mahimahi out of a doggie bag. I have the maid's room. The maid left years ago. The crabs go to bed at midnight, him in his hospital bed with a view of the red ti garden, her in the king they once shared. They would claw one another when the salmon curtains were drawn. Now they scuttle through the house searching for water, entertainment, dead things to eat. Outside, rain floods the street. My skin hardens as I write

JILL A. SCOTT
Living Room
So we've settled into friendship like cushions on a couch. There is space to keep our distance, though we're near enough to hear the echoes of laughter and other odd sounds. I suppose this is where I belong in your life, slightly askew; but if I lay my head in your lap I can remember, for a moment how it felt to be adjacent to you.
