Jodi MacArthur at Beat to a Pulp

Jodi MacArthur has a new story published – Free Mercury – at the very cool Beat to a Pulp site. The story is a wonderful exercise in voice: layered, entwined and scary. Recommended read.

Sun is high in the sky. Hot. Red hot. Flies buzz around it like a pile of bullshit. I stare, watching the flies buzz around and around.

Sirens break out behind me. I look at the road through the cracked windshield. I see I’ve swerved all the way off the road, all the way on to the grass.
