  1. I like the way “rust lockets” in Kailey Tedesco’s poem surreptitiously places “rockets” in the back of your mind. We’re in space; you want it to be rockets, but no. It’s rust lockets. That’s difficult and better. 🙂

  2. Corie Adjmi,,what a piece!!I I felt as though I was right there on the edge of the bed with that poor girl,,, I couldn’t help but think of the children and how they had to be in pain as well… where can I read more of your work?

  3. Thank you Joy!! You can find my blog, From The Core, at There you will find some personal stories and links to some of my short stories. Thank you for commenting!!

  4. I would like to thank Corie Adjmi for writing about Lyme Disease and the affect it can have on a woman and her family. I have a close family member who has chronic Lyme, and this story of pain and struggle is all too real to me. Stories like these can raise awareness and help others going through similar experiences. Adjmi captured the fear, desperation and will to heal beautifully in “Tick Tock.”
