  • Editor's Notes
    • Abstract: I've resided in a lovely small village in central Ohio for most of my adult life, and though I'll shortly be stepping down as editor of this journal, Gambier will remain my home, at least for much of the year. These notes, however, appear during the depths of a long winter, so I'm happy to recall just how pleasant the summers may be. Life is surely more relaxed — when Kenyon College students depart, only a couple hundred year-round citizens remain. We know where each other lives, what car we drive — or bicycle we ride — what pet romps at the dog park. Gambier long ago refused the convenience of home delivery, so the quotidian ritual of running into one another at the post office, adorned with its fine Public Works ... Read More

  • The Forgetting Diary
    • Abstract: I forget my best friend's birthday for what I think, as far as I can remember, is the first time.Ella is Russian, and birthdays are a big deal, so I decided to put aside our disagreements for the day. I remembered her birthday the night before, but wishing a Russian happy birthday before her birthday is bad luck. By the time I remember again, the day has passed.These things are also bad luck: hugging someone in a doorway, putting empty beer bottles on the floor, placing keys on a wooden table. At the beginning of our friendship, I felt like a walking bad-luck charm. Whenever I unknowingly invited misfortune, Ella would look at me like I'd left the milk out overnight and she'd discovered it soured in the morning.I ... Read More

  • The Healing Stone of Mountain Creek
    • Abstract: The path to Richard Howard's house is more tunnel than road. Shag-bark hickory and black oak walls curve to leaf ceilings, shielding red-dirt traffic lanes below. The forest is thick, I can feel it — its energy, its moisture, and fall smells — it all hits me as I ride past orange signs: "No Trespassing" and "Keep Out," they holler. I think about what waits ahead and wonder what will I say' And also, what the hell am I doing here'This land, deep in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, has been in Richard's family since the 1700s. It borders two million acres of national forest — an expanse that seems to ignore the passage of time. The hills, trees, and scattered residents here form the town of Mountain Creek, named for ...

  • Of Today
    • Abstract: A few days ago, I had lunch in Phoenix in a large, air-conditioned building, not unlike the large, air-conditioned buildings I've frequented in New York City or Los Angeles or Lincoln, Nebraska, though once here, in Phoenix, we like to call it wasteful. Phoenix feels, in the two months I've been here, to be the realest place I've ever lived, where the US reveals itself for what it is — precarious, violent, colonial, hanging on a fraying electrical grid.On a 120-degree day, I walked by a major institution's development office, outside of which is a wall of trickling, decorative water, surrounded by palms, wondering how everyone was so calm. Wasteful, sure, but also soothing these little fountains, these sprinklers ... Read More

  • I Can't Hear You When You're Screaming
    • Abstract: line like a piece of twine, line like a piece of dry grass, plank, nail, a finger pointing there, a finger-shush, line like a cut sewn up, a rupture stitched, like a bicycle cutting snow, a game of telephone, line like a shift of cord between cans, mouth-to-ear-to-mouth-to-ear repetitions, a human-chain saving a driver from rush flood, a barrette, a strand of hair latched in, we are each of us from somewhere else, aloft for city miles the telephone wire, line like city avenue traffic, dotted-with-shit avenue where the horses have been, horses become beautiful noise, line like string tied to a balloon, string tied to a door handle tied to a tooth, every time there's a boundary we must appoint the messenger to cross ...

  • Two Romes, and: Man-without-a-Moon
    • Abstract: As the story goes, the Roman emperor Honorius (395–423 CE) owned a parrot named Rome.Honorius loved his astonishing bird, whose vibrant colors were like those of some divine, mythic fresco (provenance unknown). The symbolism of the bird's colors overwhelmed Honorius; each color was like a separate being, all of which united in the Chief Being of the parrot.The emperor taught his bird Latin and spoke of the abstract, transcendent world of Beauty.In the Temple of Jupiter, Honorius sacrificed bulls for his magnificent pet. He ordered bronze and marble sculptures depicting himself as emperor, his parrot perched on his right hand synthesizing in one small entity all of Honorius's mysterious, authoritarian heraldries. He ... Read More

  • An Alphabet of Here: A Wisconsin Prairie Sampler
    • Abstract: Purple stars fallen to earth, they bloom around the autumn equinox, shining out from the faded gold of prairie grasses. Delicate-looking, but hardy, their rayed petals surround goldfinch-yellow hearts that glow like small lanterns. They comfort me as I walk up the dirt drive at dusk. Native Americans called them "the flower that brings frost," as if they were floral shamans, ushering in the dark season. They provide nectar for migrating monarchs that I have seen balanced upon the blooms like chips of stained glass fallen from heaven. The prairie is hushed and still as butterflies sip sweetness, the stars for which asters are named coming out overhead.Quintessential plant of the tall-grass prairie, it is what ... Read More

  • Mona Samino
    • Abstract: For months, I told people Mona Samino would fix my face. I learned her name at a party when a leather-clad woman with perfect bangs pointed at the mole on the tip of my nose and said, "You'll want to see Mona Samino about that." Mona Samino, she said, was the most skilled plastic surgeon in Chicago.The woman next to her grinned and said, "Oh, yeah. Mona Samino is a genius. Mona Samino did my dimple.""What dimple'" I asked, and the woman said, "Exactly."No stranger had before then felt license to offer such a frank assessment of my face, much less suggest a solution. It was a time in my life when other women seemed to know everything, and I was desperate for a sliver of their wisdom. I went to the bathroom to press ... Read More

  • Brown Girls
    • Abstract: We live in the dregs of Queens, New York, where airplanes fly so low that we are certain they will crush us. On our block a lonely tree grows. Its branches tangle in power lines. Its roots upend sidewalks where we ride our bikes before they are stolen. Roots that render the concrete slabs uneven, like a row of crooked teeth. In our front yards, grandmothers string laundry lines, hang bedsheets, our brothers' shorts, and our sneakers scrubbed to look brand new. Take those down! our mothers hiss. This isn't back home. In front yards, not to be confused with actual lawns, grow tomatoes that have fought their way through the hard earth.Our grandmothers refuse canes. Our brothers dress in wifebeaters. We all sit on ... Read More

  • Solitária
    • Abstract: I thought this story would end here in Rio with my sister's death, and then I thought it might end with mine. But maybe now, since you've asked, it will end with yours, long after you've decided whether you believe it or not. I can only tell you the story, but later I could show you the room, if you'd like to see it.My older sister, you remember, was a photographer. She was wild, willful, and she willed herself right into the life she wanted: bright, oversaturated photo spreads in National Geographic. I remember the silkiness of the magazine in my hands as a girl, the foldouts of green jungles, fuchsia flowers like wounds. And the animals, her favorite: poisonous indigo frogs, droopy water buffaloes, a panther so ... Read More

  • You Break It, You Own It
    • Abstract: The boy stands barechested in the creek mud, his white stomach clenched with cold. His skin is drum taut and tiger-striped in red welts, the switch's kiss. He buries his feet in the black mud. His daddy says this part of the woods is Indian-cursed. The oak leaves and acorns are black, and the squirrels evolved black to better blend into the trees' tarry bark. He looks up as a black grackle caws.His cousin is kneeling in the shadows under an old oak tree. She's built a pyramid of onyx acorns, and she whispers quietly to herself while experimenting with balance, feeling the invisible power catch when she aligns the gravity just so with her small fingers. The boy dives down to the silty bottom and rolls over to watch ... Read More

  • Mercy
    • Abstract: Maybe if I were born somewhere nice, I would be nice, too.You can understand that only if you're from somewhere no-good. So my girlfriend doesn't understand, because she's from one of those Connecticut suburbs with big, green yards and a Blue Ribbon school district. Whatever a Blue Ribbon is.We keep having the same argument, the same way every time. She says she thought people in the Midwest were supposed to be nice, but she says I'm not nice. This isn't the Midwest, I tell her. Bullshit — Cleveland isn't the Midwest, she says. And it goes on.This is what we're arguing about when I get the call from my mom that I take in the next room. I know someone is dead, because my mom calls nowadays only when people die."It ... Read More

  • The Last Soviet Poet: Remembering Dmitri Aleksandrovich Prigov
    • Abstract: Twenty years ago, I was lost again in Moscow, circling identical white multistory apartment blocks in a panic, trying to find the legendary avant-garde poet Dmitri Aleksandrovich Prigov. I was always lost in Moscow. Whether confronted by churches or apartment complexes, I found Russia's architecture dizzying in its self-replication. In the 1976 film The Irony of Fate, Zhenya gets so drunk with his friends at a Moscow banya that when they haul themselves off to the airport, he passes out at the gate. His buddies are so drunk that they cannot recall who is to go on the plane to Leningrad, and they guess (incorrectly) that it's Zhenya. Because every happy Soviet city resembles every other, Zhenya staggers from the ... Read More
