ANI KING – “Family”


He thinks I was raised by wolves,
tells our friends that
(only when he’s drunk.)
I wasn’t raised by anyone, I say,
and howl

like we used to during hard times.



Ani King lives in Lansing, Michigan. She is the founder and Editor in Chief of Syntax & Salt Magazine, and her work has been featured in Strange Horizons, Penny Magazine and other wonderful places. A comprehensive list of her published work can be found at
