The second issue of the literary magazine contains themes of power dynamics in the context of human interactions and relationships. It is often a characteristic that dominates relationships and their structure. Each piece for this issue contains an in-depth, unique, and analytical perspective of a power dynamic. The blend of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry expand on these ideas and the resonating effects of power. Sometimes, it is a dynamic that is out of the characters' hands, a power that cannot be balanced. Sometimes, it is a power that is manipulated and affects the relationship negatively, an upper hand one character has over the other. And sometimes, exercised control and dominance spread and encompass an entire life, leaving the power dynamic as the backbone to a character's existence.
