Place Series Day 1: Campus

21 Aug

Starting a week of shorties inspired by place. Today I sat on a bench on the quad of Bates College. Something about the peace (the students aren’t here yet) made me write something dark and violent. DO NOT LIKE. This one will live only on my hard drive but I’ll put it in a cell so it won’t hurt any of the others who are imprisoned there.


Working Title: This Is Life
1st Sentence: Ugly things aren’t supposed to happen in pretty places.
Favorite Sentence: Occasionally the ragged muffler of a motorcycle filters through the calm but mostly the world is nothing but peaceful, here, nothing if not safe.
Word Length: 482
