I’m happy to say that my short-short piece, ‘Pretty Dead Girl Takes a Break’ is up on The Toast now.
She peels back the plastic and gets out of the water, a little clumsy with her limbs not moving right and her blue-black blood slow shot through them. She hasn’t even opened her eyes yet, they’ve been closed that long she has to pry them with thick fingers, prop them open a while, practice her blinks.
I may or may not have had lots of True Detective/Twin Peaks/Macabre dead-girls-as-props-for-man-pain thoughts of late. How about you?
