I have a new story up at Monkeybicycle. I hope you enjoy it.
1. It’s beautiful out, like really beautiful. Not the way they’re used to, sunsets and sunrises, or even the bright clarity after rain. It’s more of a golden beauty, halfway through an eclipse beauty, halfway through a wildfire beauty.
This story, unlike most everything I’ve ever written, was prompted by the title. And the fact that I wrote it mostly to impress a friend and that is basically the carrot to my racehorse every single time. And the fact that I will never forget the taste of a high school football stadium at night.
