Issue 1: S.P. Flannery

Brine Children

Flayed skins they see
dry on well-smoothed rocks
unattended by the spear throwers
who dive back into the frenzy.

This band of rapscallion kids
snatches the hides still wet
and steals them away to a field,
their own private cove.

In the distance deep-bellowed
hollering echoes from bull and
cow seals who watch hunters
scream and cry over their loss.

--S.P. Flannery
