A Quiet Root

We comb through hundreds of literary magazines to bring you one stellar poem or flash fiction piece every weekday.

“Princess Diaries No. 3: Pool” by Caleb Nichols

Dripping drama, drenched in camp
1994 & somehow we are free
To be merpersons, mer-made
To whip our wild hair deliciously
Teenage daughters of a muscular sea-king

Read it in Taco Bell Quarterly
