Tim’s dry, red eyes lost focus again.
His mind had begun to wonder while reading story after fifty-word story, most of which were asinine drivel.
The hour was late and he needed to select just one more before he could rest. Finally throwing in the towel, he chose this one.
Marcus Benjamin Ray Bradley grew up in Perryville and now lives in Versailles, KY, with his wife and daughters. Other work can be found in the pages of Chiron Review.
Editor: Most of the submissions are definitely not “asinine drivel”, but I enjoyed the joke behind the story. Cheers, Marcus!
