Crystal by Sara Alavi


A flight attendant

whose bra fits poorly

a smooth quartz

holding the sanity of a

young twenty something

in its refractions

half the name of a salt brand

half the name of a lake



when its a ball

it predicts the future

or at least

reveals it

when it’s a powder

it’s illegal, addictive

when it’s a glass

you’re dining somewhere fancy

savor the

food and the

feel of the

upper echelon

— — — — — — — —


You can follow it


But why do that

When you can wear it

Vessel ( പറ ) by Neena Kallookulangara


Her leg touches mine touches against hers

She knows and I know she knows

It’s us, only us

And my can of seltzer water

A hand lingers interrupted by the cry of a baby

We never exchanged words yet

Found intimacy in row 15
