Literature
Puzzle pieces
remember the puzzles
you used to click them together
with you mother
3d fishes swam over the table
moving left and right with your head
remember the halves
and quarters
and thirds that went missing
the more you put them together
each time more disappeared
remember crying at the imperfections
seeing that you'd never have enough pieces again
remember when your mother told you were too old
and her too busy.
remember her leaving for work before you woke up
and returning too late to put puzzles together
she slept too often
you too little
you cried too often
her home too little
somehow you missed her
someone who lived in your house
you wished you cared less
you wished she cared more
it hurt more than it should
you wished you had appreciated that last puzzle

dry lips
spit dripping slowly
one, two.
lie back against the cold,
hard tiles.
and sleep again.
mouth burning
and stomach complaining loudly.
my eyes
they burn at the screen
still i stare
tap-typing away
murals of thin people
painted on my inner eyelids.
and for the first time in five moths
the waterworks choke
groan
and sputter to a start
and squeak
crack
and shudder to a pause.

i will try to fix you
snaps from jigsaw puzzles
the pieces correct
the corners
the edges
a sky section
some grass
and a few unruly horses
whirring screws spinning in place
the circumference round enough
one here
another there
a nail and a hammer
bookshelves never looked better
make up covering a stunning truth
the foundation light enough
eyes lined
and shadowed
lips glossed
cheeks blushed
chemicals hiding a knockout smile
a boy in a scarf waiting for the bus
he shivers and shies from the wind
tear tracks down his cheeks
backpack by his feet
a fake smile contradicting the belt's imprint
bruised around his neck
the puzzle pieces carved into his side
scarred away from their partner

Let me stay home
Listen to it
LOUD.
Maybe you'll
feel again.
Pretend it's a
distraction.
Make believe
it makes you
feel better.
To feel better,
though,
you'd have to be
able to feel.
Maybe tomorrow
it'll kick in.
Another year of
arguments,
held back tears,
screaming,
scars
and
fucking skirts.

Deny yourself oxygen.
Wait until you are gasping.

Never take enough to be easy.

Little sips.

Are you fading?

Literature
Paper Mirrors
i.
smoky options smear on creased paper towels, signed with
the squiggly lines of your shaky hand: pretend
this is a different place with blurred edges and dye your
eyes to tint the windows into stained glass with no
peeping onlookers and pretend, pretend until your spine bends
and balances precariously like a cliffhanger
at the end of a story and – remember to pretend but
don't forget to snap.

ii.
we all know the difference
between inspiration and influence
but sometimes i wonder
what colour your eyes really are.
money or dreams
happiness ripped at the threadbare seams
so really who knew
lies could taste so goddamn sweet
iii.
with your patchwork tongue pulling apart stitch by stitch –
spiderweb of white cotton and skipped-over knots –
your words trip over each step between the ladder
rungs: the air grasps your ankles, yanks
down a white-clothed dream-
turned-nightmare and exposes your blotchy thighs
to a panic-bitten world. and when they stare,
peel back your skin and show

The Price of Dawn
1. when i was younger
my price of dawn was
nightmares that haunted me constantly.
when they left me be
dread filled me
waiting
for the absurd,
violent mixtures
of images
and sound.
i paid to see the day
with my fears.
2. now that i'm older
i pay an entry fee
harder to earn
than tears staining
my innocent cheeks.
i wait up
and daydream.
i hope and pray
that a smile of yours
will carry me through
to the next day.

Las Vegas Syndrome
Las Vegas Syndrome
---------------------
Alec Maynard
They named the pill Las Vegas, after the new city that never sleeps, despite originating from a Chinese replica developed in New Jersey. Aaron Knight’s grandfather, George Knight Senior, often spoke fondly of a time when LV’s were optional, when people would waste hours every day lying in bed doing nothing. Aaron considered him a Dozer, a pervert. We often excuse the elderly for their eccentricities but Aaron always found it difficult to understand and forgive his grandfather’s obsession with sleeping. George Knight Senior was the last of Aaron’s grandparents, only dying twelve years earlier, at the unusually old age of seventy-two. Aaron was born too late to meet the rest of his forebears, they were merely names rarely recounted in passing conversation however he retained fond memories of George Senior.
       Aaron Knight lived in London, which was a drastically different city to the one George Senior recal

the trans-, the pan- and the asexual.
i.
They said
He couldn't feel like a boy
And a girl
At the same time.
So he grew his hair long
With colorful dreadlocks
And wore eyeliner
But kept his name.
ii.
They told her that
She could either love boys
Or girls
Or both.
Not everyone.
So she fell in love
With the boy who
Was born as a girl.
iii.
He didn't feel love
For the girl with the large chest.
Or the boy with the sparkling eyes.
But that didn't mean
He didn't love them
In his own way.
If that boy's way of loving is
Invisible,
And the boy with the long hair and eyeliner's way of loving is
Invisible,
And the girl who had a taste for personality, not gender's way of loving is
Invisible
Then aren't we all just
Invisible
Too?
