Something Unburiable

The Runner Up in the 2017 Spring Shock “Trigger Warning” Writing Contest Trigger Warning: this story contains depictions of Friedrich Nietzsche being kissed. Reader discretion is advised.

I am publishing it serially here at Liberty Island Magazine and simultaneously at Liberate Liberty, and I will do so on an irregular schedule. ***** Chapter 1: Bill Navarro stood outside the bus door, just to the side closest to the engine. "Over there," he kept saying as people flowed off the bus. He didn’t have to say it. He didn’t have to have point at the spot where he wanted them either. […]
