By Rachel Muenz The road unrolls before him, cracked and purple-grey. The pavement is worn but good, better than that behind him, cratered and half-repaired with uneven disks of tar. On either side, trees slide past the corners of his eyes, their branches reaching for his arms. Beyond the trees, the hunched forms of hills, shadowed and filmed with pale green, rise and fall. He feels the hum of the […]

Taylor Swift?! Uh-huh!

By Brikena Ribaj Today I rocked to country. Yes. I did. I rocked to country music. The reason I say this twice is because, well, for lack of a better phrase, I don’t do country. I don’t know why.

Shoes of mass destruction

By Rachel Muenz It begins with a flash of light just below the windows of the aircraft. Then, the fuselage buckles outward and bursts into thousands of pieces which flutter to the ground like shreds of paper. A cloud of thick smoke engulfs half the plane.
