Two Pieces by William Henderson
Left of the Dippers. Not there yesterday, or there yesterday, but mostly invisible. That light is what I think about when I think about you.
Bare It In Trafalgar Square
Thousands of pigeons. Men with black umbrellas. Tourists with maps and cameras. Me in a trench coat, and then me not in a trench coat.

Also, NAP Literary Magazine will publish Henderson’s first chapbook in January 2012. You can reach Henderson at email@example.com
Two pieces by Nicole Monaghan
No lampposts for blocks. Click-click, neck hairs knowing danger follows in a baseball cap. I hurl heels into the lightless night, dash toward anything else.
They say survival instinct. They say adrenaline. They say flashes of life in stills. No, just memories of color, of impossible beauty on ordinary evenings.
