I Am Not Afraid To Die

By Chloe Chou

The boat reeked of fish.

Mermaid for a Moment

By Paige Bergan

Sunbeam, slices of wet light
The coral reef filled with dreams
glossy fish murmur-
swirling, swishing, swimming
envy of the rainbow
crimson, sapphire, persimmon, lime
Colors never seen by human eyes before
Ebony hair dances, harmony to the waves
