Let the lazy take you where it wants because you never know.
-Shaman Jim |
Widen your eyes as if in dying,
as if in death.
like the newborn
seal surrenders its first
hours to the blinding
and arctic light.

Laughing Trout is my short story published by Ball State University in their literary magazine The Broken Plate, Spring edition, 2017. You can read the story by finding the sample edition and clicking the arrow.
