Flash Fiction chosen by Kate Jones.
I love the way Tracy has conveyed so much about the narrator in this tiny glimpse into her experience on the metro.
I like the way the flash is written like a conversation, like the narrator is directly addressing the reader. The way the author has used really small sentences also adds to the drama and the message he’s conveying.
This intense, detailed, yet short piece holds many evocative references to nature. The penultimate paragraph took my breath away, and I had to go back and read the whole piece again.
This piece has lots going on, and is told with a dash of irony and a pinch of humour throughout. The ending, delivered with irony by the youthful narrator, is a perfect reflection of resignation.
