You Got This! Eric Varela

Tell me about your background — your family, goals, personal interests. My dad raised me. He owns a construction company. I’ve been working since I was 15. I went to school originally to be a game warden — I was working toward a Bachelor’s at the University of New Mexico. Then I decided to Read more ›

“Confluence”

Confluence Jill sat on the aluminum steps of the silver trailer she’d shared with Russ these past four months and watched the creek inch not just forward but toward her. She’d seen thunderclouds approach like this, taunting and inevitable, but those she could handle. She could go inside and they’d pass. Read more ›

“The Big Island”

The Big Island Look, I hate this town sometimes but Carmelo Anthony said it more succinctly: Man, fuck New York. Staring despondently at the banking site that displays my lack of savings. Being treated like a criminal at a deli with a nonsensical ticket-payment system, and I had misplaced my ticket. Dear Read more ›

“Profession: Passenger”

Profession: Passenger Three months after your last memorial I finally searched the public library catalog for your favorite movie. I admit I was procrastinating, but I had my reasons. I believed that the longer I put off the so-called work of mourning, the longer you’d stick around. But three months passed and Read more ›

Wind-shaped Woman

We castrated the bulls ourselves with our pocketknives. Since I’m her only granddaughter, she made me watch her sneak up behind one with a blade behind her back, grab the sack and slice through in one quick motion. Somehow she didn’t need to tie anything. She liked to do it when they were young. Meanwhile, Read more ›
