As Linda was Buying the Tulips [Short fiction]

Dobbs, Sarah (2017) As Linda was Buying the Tulips [Short fiction]. UNTHOLOGY 9, Unthank Books.

Item Type: Other



Succumb when love fizzles out and degrades you in public, when your knees give and your breath fails. Shun your mother. Flee the music of the camps and the glare of white nights. Sell your baby. Sell your stash, your kidney and your collection of strange dolls to buy a time machine. Brave the seas in a bathtub. Ride the dust currents. Your timing must be impeccable, and your skill with the scalpel expert. Mourn, salvage and refuse to fade. Struggle up the beach, heart raring, fists tightened. Welcome to the archipelago.
