My second publication in GONE LAWN! A weird one. Lurid even. “Little Dove” actually started (the scene with the box) in a dream and led me somewhere I didn’t expect. Always interesting to me, how writing does that. The character who emerged is definitely unlikable, but I hope someone you can imagine..
GONE LAWN describes what they want: “Desired: sincere, well-written, imaginative, unusual and/or innovative works that charm and displace us… Gone Lawn is especially partial to odd animals.” They awarded my previous publication a Pushcart nomination, so they hold a special place in my heart. I don’t know whether my CNF pandemic flash “Ready or Not” was an odd animal, but the experience that inspired it was weird.
Great cover art by the poet Koss.
