a world of love and envy
short stories, flash fiction, and poetry
A country girl, abused by her husband, learns to tread lightly as she finds refuge in the birch trees and the starkly lit eyes of night creatures. A woman’s affair with her husband ends as he lights a Chesterfield and abruptly fires her. A naive black girl journeys with her boyfriend to California, experiences the loss of her baby and then him, then discovers a symbol of revenge in the form of a red juggling ball.
