The Canteen
by L.J. Chizak

I am packing my bags to go back to college, my senior year, and Gramps is in rewind.  His doctors give him a couple of weeks; his family, me included, gives him a month or more. ...

Two Short Shorts: Rory and Warrior Blood
by Douglas Cole
Rory was just a little off.  Something was wrong with his smile, which was crooked and never kind.  He was just a kid, like me, but he already seemed to know things about cruelty.  I don’t know that I could have named it...

Bullies
by Karl Harshbarger

Casey saw them in the afternoon on his way home from school, two guys, both around 30, drinking beer and sprawled out on the steps leading up to the ticket office at the trolley station.  Their backpacks, sleeping bags and other things, were piled up on the sidewalk...

by Ron Singer

The Red Glove
by Vivian Lawry

Roy owned the only drive-through funeral business in Maine. It was full-service, with 24-7 viewing hours, burial and cremation packages, and an array of funeral merch that included flower arrangements, grave blankets, Hallmark Lasting Expressions bereavement cards, urns for cremains, and commemorative jewelry....

The Kite As A Metaphor
