  The Rapist
poem by Ani Gjika
art by Jennifer Jenkins

He comes to slice life--
cuts her from mouth to mouth
throws in all his little worms
then quickly sews her up and
leaves her mummy-like.
Unwilting by Jennifer Jenkins

Garlic Heart

    poem by Yolanda Vega
    art by Julio Mateo

You spoke in French,
and called me eschallot.
You made me quiver
with your warm hand
that searched
my garden
until you found,
plucked my garlic heart,
gently separated it into cloves
and smashed them
a pulp to roast and season
with your cannibal meal.
