How I Met Your Father - Cagibi

"Like sparrows on a line when the train comes through, the group went still at the noise we made. All 30 of them. All shapes and sizes, teens to middle-aged, in sweats and jeans, mainly, and mostly men. Many were disfigured."

Flash memoir piece from our current issue by Mickey Greaves.

Moths to the Flame - Cagibi

"I woke to a faint aroma of cinnamon that hung in the air.

The pungent bark helped my mother’s chronic abdominal pain. When she drank tea she added a sliver of cinnamon bark to help settle her stomach. The backdoor was left open and it was gray outside. In the pale light of dawn I saw her pick peppercorns that came down in deep green jade from a vine around the trunk of an areca.

I didn’t feel like getting up, but I knew I had to get going to catch Chim’s boat."

Beard - Cagibi

Tuesday reading: from issue 12, this short story by Carla Miriam Levy.

"When he was finished he tapped the shaver against the sink to knock the hairs out of it. He set it back in its case, lying open on the shelf above the sink, and ruffled Carter’s hair on his way out.

She was alone with the shaver, and she gazed at it like it was a holy relic. She reached for it and caressed its chrome body, still warm from her dad’s hand, like a living thing with a heartbeat inside of it."

Dragons and Dinosaurs - Cagibi

"Our children, at their respective ages of six and three, struggle daily to separate truth from the mires of myth, fantasy, and dream. My son dreams that his bed, of which he’s fond, spit at him. For two days afterwards tears spring to his eyes at the recollection of that dream. He just can’t figure out why his bed would do such a thing."

An essay on writing, memory, fantasy and truth, from our current issue.

2K20 - Cagibi

"There’s a rebellious cornerstone you reach when you’re a kid on the Wirral, children from the new estates roaming dark streets, in a thrill because you know you should be home, but you share a buzz with the street lamps, like they’re trying to show you all the mad sh*t you overlook in daylight, and that if you go home now you might miss a smackhead running in circles, or a lost tenner blowing against a curb, or a game of Truth and Dare with girls who ignore curfews."

This personal essay by Edward Little is quite a ride to read. Hope you enjoy it as we do.

What We Found Inside the Whale - Cagibi

This story--you must read it in full.

"Magda inspects the carcass, the scars inscribed on its hull-shaped head like ancient writing. She runs her hands along the jagged saw of its open mouth. Her copper tendrils radiate in the rising sun and the crowd barely moves, knowing that they’re before something older than time, and stranger. We prepare to make the incision. The documentarians frame us in tight close-ups. We are serious and somber and I wonder if they can understand how much we are meant to be in love. I wonder if they know what it is they are seeing."
