The Sinkhole
excerpt from EMERSON, a novella
by Caleb Michael Sarvis

August 10, 2017

In the morning, a sinkhole opens up in the Cafeteria, Emerson’s trailer park. The ground caves in just behind the mobile homes on the other side of the water, sucking in all the contents of the lake. The water and fish all disappear into the center of the earth. The geese manage to fly away but the turtles are too slow. All that remain are puddles and half eaten fish carcasses...

Only in New York
Person to Person——
A Film Review by: Jennifer Parker

Film - Only in New York, Person to Person--  A Film Review

You must have a lot of chutzpah to make a movie about a slice of life in New York City when there is a legacy of iconic films that come before yours. Off the top of my head I can name (in no particular order) Manhattan, Midnight Cowboy, On the Town, Annie Hall, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Taxi Driver, Dog Day Afternoon, West Side Story, My Dinner with Andre and The Muppets Take Manhattan—you get the idea... read more >

I got it from her, this habit of clenching my feet into a fist. I may not be the sharpest knife in the jar, but I understand this: a marriage is built of bones and teeth. We take care of ours: we brush, we floss, we see our dentist. Even so, I’m holed up in a Florida hotel writing this eulogy while she’s at a shoot–‘em-up flick...

The Wealth of Water Waste
by Clinton Crockett Peters

July 20, 2017

Twelve of us canoe on the Green River in Utah, whose color, a buttery turtle shell, almost earns its name. Along with the six barrels of food choices, jerky and Nova bars, two toilets, seven tents, and sunscreen, we barge sixty gallons of H2O.
