Though it’s brief, our first piece creates an entire complex scenario and then pulls back the curtain, so to speak. It’s called “Anniversary,” written by Kip Knott, and published in 101 Words.
Our second piece speaks in absolutes and fragilities—of small creatures, and all of life. Written by Austin Ross and published in Hobart After Dark (HAD), it’s called “Never Handle Grounded Bats.”
Our final piece is divided into four scenes in a snapshot of paint tones that correspond with loss. Listen to R.S. Powers read their piece, “The Four Worst Paint Names We Came Across At Home Depot Upon Failing To Pick A New Color For The Empty Spare Room,” published in Entropy Mag.
