The Fathers at the Little League Field  

Amorak Huey

Above them, the field lights hum to life, // a million moths clump and whirl and dive. / The game has tightened in the late innings, // the shouting grows tense, important. / Cigarettes are flicked into the gravel, // embers blur to ash.

Dualities

Jason Phoebe Rusch

Jason Phoebe Rusch is a queer writer from the Chicago suburbs. His full-length debut Dualities explores gender and patriarchy from the perspective of a man who was socialized and is currently still read as a woman. He is interested in complication and nuance and messy human failing, his own and that of others.
