On ‘Going Away’
Julieanne Smolinski

I am both compelled by the idea of companionship and repulsed by the idea of not being able to just be completely and totally inert and do whatever the hell I want while sliding pickle spears into my face like a cartoon sawmill.

Wonderful prose. Is the answer companionship that will join us inert on the couch?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
