Puppet

by Sonja Nitschke


It was a blizzard out there. I'm just a toy maker, I don't know how to survive in blizzards.

I was lucky to have my wooden boy, the one whose nose elongates when he lies.

Whenever he told his falsehoods, I chopped off his nose. They made a grand fire.

I hope it didn't hurt.
