Volume 3 - Issue 24

"Love can cauterize wounds and carve new ones. It is a bane, a salve, a mystery, and an all-consuming entity that we sometimes seek to stare down and shrink from because we cannot stand to see what is reflected back at us. This issue portrays love’s complicated facets, especially its passion, pain, and ambiguity."

-D. W. McKinney, Issue 24 curator and TNSF Web Resident

Fiction by Madeleine Sardina
Interview conducted by DW McKinney

"My bones creep out from the seeping soil, dwarfed even by the claws of the ancient lizards embedded in the same bank. The geologist watches the bank collapse while rain pours in curtains off the brim of her sunhat. She sees my rib jut out of the ground, swiftly washed clean in the downpour."

-Madeleine Sardina, "Permineralization"

"You Belong to Me"
Visual Art by Serge Lecomte
"You belong to me is a colorful piece with man and woman. The man holds the woman's heart in his hand. Is this love? Possession cannot be defined as love, except by the possessor. The bright colors offset the theme of this painting. It doesn't depict violence as its true definition, but it is more than implied."

-Serge Lecomte, "You Belong to Me"

Poetry by Amanda Leal
"your fingertips on my spine, illuminating each vertebrae/ individually, the only light to be found on this road, where the canals/ run like arteries on either side, the skeletons of power plants/ bare, the shuttered darkness like a layer of topsoil/ on my car."

-Amanda Leal, "Magma"
