Flash Fiction chosen by Jim Landwehr.
This one captured my interest because the main character could very easily be me. I don’t sing out loud, but there are times I wish I was carefree enough that I could. I also liked the way the song title subversively speaks about the crowd gathered at the train stop.
I like so much about this story. The line about Post It Notes being, ‘The currency of her generation’ is pretty epic. Then, sending her off with ‘directions for the other side.’ A splendid description of a farewell wish.
A perfect summary of our twenty-first century distractedness. When a story makes me want to punch a character, I know it’s touching a nerve. A well done piece that finishes with perfection.
Emotion, compassion and empathy zipped up and compressed into twenty five words. A two sentence gut punch.
