Molly Gaudry, "July in Cincinnati"

He brings ice cubes to bed.

(from Dogzplot Flash Fiction)

As I often find myself doing with really short pieces, I read this one twice. I like it. It’s a woozy mix of cold and hot. There’s something heavy about it, too. The sentences run thick with words, clumps of them. Hard to think concretely about a story like this.
Read it yourself, twice, here.
