Some light reading for the weekend.
Actually, it’s kinda heavy. More trigger warnings—violence, racism, drug abuse, sexual abuse, etc.—than a Tarantino film.
This short story, which was recently published by Winged Penny Review, is based on conversations I had with a friend who lived in the underground flood channels of Vegas and worked the streets for many years. She gave me permission to use the material in any way I saw fit. This is her story, though abbreviated and, at times, altered for artistic effect. The title is intentionally provocative and somewhat satirical.
I’ve been working on vignettes, flash fiction, and short stories set on the streets of Las Vegas, and this is the third piece to be published or accepted for publication. Thanks to Rodney Lee and Erica Vital-Lazare for their feedback on the story!
