    Freshman

    by Epiphany Ferrell It occurred to Marion that she’d been lying in bed quite a long time.

I’m convinced of that. I know Tommy very well.  I’m his brother from another father and his best friend. My older brother Tommy is the […]

  • Killed Steel

    Killed Steel

    by Carolyn Drake After Cathy’s death, she found me in Hendriksville. Hendriksville rots beside the Ohio River. The ‘Welcome’ sign reads Population: 5,000, but they must’ve been counting gravestones. The steel mills are two decades deceased, yet the mesothelioma remains, robbing the former workers and their progeny of health and life. Breathing the air in […]
