A falcon without a mate lectures a lonely man. A gull prompts a mute teenager to open up in therapy.

Ken Kaye, a family psychologist, earned the MFA degree in Fiction from Bennington College. His fiction has appeared in Lit Pot and Glimmer Train Stories. He has lived in Evanston, Illinois since 1958.
