Ceaseless Seagull: A Novel

her appealing emails
his pawn-ticket

her miniature whistle
his large animal breath

her improper antique vases
his privileged bookstall

her cuttle-fish wit
his ceaseless seagull

the locusts on his terrace
the rubies on her beach

the coal in her heart
the gasjet in his eye

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

Madagascar (March, 2010) – Before leaving the comforts of home, my grandfather and I excitedly discussed my itinerary. On his suggestion; I sought out the only train still operational in Madagascar which traverses a remote expanse of the country.

The Fianarantsoa-Côte Est railway is a colonial built railway that connects the high plateau to the sea. Due to a cyclone a few weeks earlier; the train from Fianarantsao was only partly operational. Despite delays and changes in itinerary; happenstance allowed for me to see some of the most threatened habitat in the world, including several isolated villages situated in the cloud forest.

Tabletop Studio
by Gary Michael Dault

No.206. Independence Day.

"What's this then?" asked next-door Abigail, more to herself than to her friend's mannequin, McDowell--who was busy--strangely enough--adjusting the details of a big dot painting he was just finishing up.

The mannequin said nothing.

"Does he know you've started to paint on your own?"

More silence. She could hear the rasp of McDowell's brush on the canvas.

"I suppose you pick things up, being in the studio all the time."

McDowell went on painting.

"I'm going to find out what he thinks of his mannequin turning artist," she told him, in a tone that lay somewhere between information and challenge.

McDowell put down his brush and walked stiffly out of the studio.
