Ominous shadows.

15 Nov

Marnie Shure’s story X over at DOGZPLOT. It’ll only take you a minute to read, but if you know what’s good for you, it’ll take you 10. That’s right. Read it 10 times. Love it. Feel it grow on your bones like a flourish.

The shadow on the x-ray is actually almost lovely, my sister told me: a flourish on something as static as bone. I wasn’t prepared to believe her but when she took the square cardstock envelope from off her bed and turned off the lights and pressed the contents against the apartment window to push the sun right through I saw just what she meant.

    That was an beautifully unsettling story.
