"Three monsters that are not metaphors" by Dani Atkinson

1. The kelpie is not a metaphor for depression.

“You’re kind of like a metaphor for depression, though,” I tell her, and she snorts angrily. Her hide twitches, dark and sticky as tar pits.




"This is not my adventure" by Karlo Yeager Rodríguez

I know something’s wrong, the way we’re both hunched over your tiny table in your tiny kitchen, and you keep looking at the tea you’re not drinking. My head grazes your ceiling as I snatch another scone off your plate and pop it into my mouth. Crumbs scatter across my shirt, already stained with moss and sap. Nothing like your own unblemished cream-colored cashmere vest, a complement to your shaggy brown goat legs. You keep stirring your tea, but not once do you bring it to your lips.
