I’m thrilled to be visiting Breadcrumbs Mag again on the day before Halloween to share a little unsettling fiction piece. This is definitely different for me and I had a lot of fun writing it. Check out the whole piece here.
In the hospital we are only allowed to see you after we’ve disrobed and we’ve scrubbed ourselves with disinfectant. The disinfectant smells like lemons, which is an interesting touch considering the last crop of lemons fell — rotting — off their trees five years ago. A year or two before now and that realization would’ve stung like citrus in a fresh cut, but now there’s only a slow burn behind my eyes that lessens when I blink.
I will also be reading at the second Breadcrumbs Mag event: The Trail Vol. 2 Release show on November 12th. The event will be held at Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn. Here’ s the Facebook event. It’s sure to be a fun time!
