Serial Prose

by Alexandra Erin


I felt a little guilty, leaving a fifty-five word flash story pinned to the hooker's blouse instead of a poem, but I'd found my inspiration flagging lately... there weren't enough rhymes for words like "decapitation" or "asphyxiation" and I'd worn out my thesaurus looking for synonyms.

I just hoped they'd still know it was me.

Maybe I've been watching too much Dexter but I loved it.

I don't watch Dexter, but I love it too. The last line is brilliant.

Looking back, this is one of my favorites of yours. Just meta enough without being too snarky.
