PROSE | The Silent Pariah by Theva Kuhan

feature image: Giacomo Antonio Melchiorre Ceruti, called Pitoccheto ‘the little beggar’ (Milan, 1698-1767) I sit here and watch.

Now that you are here would you come and see, There is something I would really want to show. Look through that keyhole and see carefully, Tell me, tell me what your eyes...

SHORT STORY | Secrets, lies and finally, my mother by Jonathan CA Lim

Tattoo by Larry Brogan My mother always told me, “I may be your mother, but the truth is that you have all my doubts.” “I am a child… a baby. The earliest memories to my recollection are the demons of my upbringing,” says Henry. As irony would have it, those memories would shape my first 17 years of life. It’s a good age. A good age to understand life’s ultimate tale of morality. In truth, there is no lesson to be learned here, no higher calling, only a physical demon — a shadow, which had visited me in my...
