COMMENDED 10 WORD STORIES
The curse was lifted. Too Late. The clowns kept coming
In the Wardrobe, her suitcase, her passport, her naked lover
I now pronounce you man and wife. Nurse, curtains please
She left him. He dreamed of building a time machine
Puberty’s halfway tremor shuddering to a halt on naked calves
Soft grip on arm. Chicken skin. She doesn’t know him.
Upside-down on elder. Vigorously pecking. Flies into box of beaks
This isn’t our town anymore. We are last summer’s lovers
Gran gave me advice. Comforted, I packed away the spirit board
His broken promises, in a bag, mewling on a doorstep.
Engine purring. Roof down. This is the life. Then rain.
He cut my hair really well. Creepy for a dentist.
If this happens again, she thought, nobody would ever know.
