How we live

Upstate New York
Ivan Maddog Noble

Some stretch of stone between Albany and Syracuse. Generations of forgotten old men lived in these timber palaces.
Big Horn
It Happened at Little Big Horn

Bonnie Devet
Time haunts the Little Big Horn. On top of Last Stand Hill ... sits an obelisk, the kind Victorians loved to raise during the 19th century in order to honor the dead.

Life Moon Issue
JULY 20, 1969
The Apollo 11 Moon Landing at 50

Mad and starving I watch the starry dynamo in the machinery of Night
What is revealed in my hormone soaked body that seems to constantly yearn, always yearning for something, sometimes uncontrollably

First Love, Paradise, Tenderness and Vertigo
Abigail George
I can’t stand your love affairs Jerome. Your one night stands, the booze talking, the gospel truths coming out of your mouth, and your orange or pineapple juice laced with vodka.
A Prince’s Wedding, a Young Man’s Birthday 7.11.19
Michael Chacko Daniels

On a sunny day of the coldest February in 70 years, I skirt around sidewalk poop—dogs’ and humans’—as I walk down Pine Street towards the post office.
