Published in: The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, July/Aug 2015

"The blackbird of my soul shrinks and disappears into the purple sky.
My breath quickens with the familiar pain of separation. In our youth, we seldom split for more than a few minutes a day, and I always felt naked when she was not burrowed into her slot, her wings spread across my shoulders. Now Adela has another body, and I have to spend half the day figuring out what to do with myself.”
