The Gentlest of Bends
"A cluster of afternoon traffic rose up from the distance where the road was a shimmering black sea. Perkin hotboxed his cigarette and flicked loose the cherry in a burst of orange embers that ashed the sidewalk, tucked the un-smoked portion into the front pocket of his t-shirt. He eyed the still roost of overhead stoplights and readied his Need Work, Hungry sign." - From The Gentlest of Bends
My story The Gentlest of Bends is up over at Burrow Press as part of their 15 Views of Orlando project. You can read the story here. It's part 5 (of 15), so be sure to check out the previous and forthcoming stories.
A big thanks to Ryan Rivas and Nathan Holic for giving me the chance to participate in such a fantastic project!
