Unpredictable Weather Patterns

In  by October 14, 2022
Kevin isn’t like the other members of his notorious family:his storm-front brothers racing out of the northeast. Nor is he in the category of his boisterous hurricane cousins,foaming and churning off the coast. Kevin isn’t even like his howling tornado twin sisters,twisting and shouting all over the plains. He is just an insignificant, small storm,soon […]

Helianthus

“Funny, a vampire with SAD,” I quip. The tall Ukrainian peers through mirrored goggles. “Intolerance to sunlight does not qualify me as vampire.” Leonid is our grower. It doesn’t matter how clever the plant biologists are, myself newly included, if you don’t have someone with green fingers to nurture your gene-hack creations. And Leonid is, […]

Yard Work

Carlotta said, “The first rule of yard work is—” I held up my hand to stop her. “Hold on,” I said. “I saw this in a movie. Let me guess. The first rule of yard work is: ‘You do not talk about yard work.’” Life is a movie. Sometimes it’s Fight Club. Carlotta shook her […]

What to Expect When You're Expecting Advanced Life-forms

In  by September 16, 2022
Before becoming a plarent, I dedicated most of my energy to sculpting the contours of my crust and pumping up my magnetic fields. I was young and gorgeous—the envy of my siblings—living my best life in the fast lane. As the ages passed, however, a sense of emptiness overcame me. Then came the bad years. […]

Sea Turtles

In  by August 26, 2022
I don’t  know how it happened, only one day he was my son and the next he wasn’t. It’s been a month, and now he’s a sea turtle. He never even liked sea turtles. I don’t remember them from his childhood, sea turtles or llamas or little grey owls, all those pastel animals that end […]

Demeter Seeks Persephone in the Year 2210

In  by July 29, 2022
1. OVERWORLD We, the chorus, welcome you to today’s stage, a patch in the rocky landscape once known as Attica. Close your eyes and inhale the subtle sweetness of sun-warmed grass. Hear the soft rustle of dresses, giggling young women whose whispers counterpoint the chirping birds. Soon you realize there’s no variation in the birdsong, […]

An Intersection of Parallel Lives

In  by July 8, 2022
“You don’t need a reason to save people,” I argue to the boss. But apparently, if I’m flying on her dime, I do. In the end, it’s the chickens that win her over. The records I uncovered deep in the archives state that two centuries ago, when the Novus and its passengers departed to colonize […]

What's A Penguin?

In  by June 24, 2022
Michael stares at the seagull sitting on the ship’s railing; the bird, in turn, watches the half-eaten protein bar in the teenager’s hand. These pests are everywhere, always on the lookout for an easy meal since most of the fish disappeared. Michael crumbles the plastic wrapper and tosses it at the bird. The seagull takes […]

The Long Night

In  by June 10, 2022
I’m alone now, except for Mother’s whispered reassurances that this is what’s best for us all. The long night brings with it many memories: the sunlit park, the clouds bullied from the sky, leaving nothing but uncluttered blue and my true love. “I’m leaving you.” She sat next to me on a park bench in […]
