Morphine for Heroine

My piece “Morphine for Heroine” was published on Mike Madden’s website under his Friday Fiction series.  Thank you to Mr. Madden for running the piece.

I’d normally have something more expository and verbose to add, but my country has failed us all and I’ve barely the inclination to press down hard enough on the keys to form letters on the page.  I am bereft of hope.

Yet, it is not in my nature to refuse a fight.

To my fellow human beings at home and abroad, be safe.  Whatever I can do to stymie this wave of bigoted hatred I will do with sanguine intensity.

Until the tides are turned back, until sanity returns, good night, and good luck.
