An “end of the world” piece with the charm it deserves. If this is how it all goes down, then count me in. I’m sure I still have a copy of Coltrane’s A Love Supreme around here somewhere. This is my second piece to appear in Untoward Magazine and a special thanks to Matt Rowan for making that happen as well as to Peter Markus for the English skills, and finally, to the late Kenneth Patchen whose influence, I hope, albeit most sloppily, graces this story. It’s difficult to stand on the back of giants, but, hey, it’s the end of the world. Enjoy.
This piece appears in A-Minor Magazine’s Flash Fiction/Prose Special Issue alongside pieces by Tawnysha Greene, Charles Rafferty, J. Bradley, Tantra Bensko, and Rebecca King. I’m thrilled to be a part of this issue and hope you find the piece as satisfying as you need it to be. This particular one creeps low, as they say, and I hope a part of me finds its way under your skin. Thank you for reading.
