From Heart Trouble

The pig ran and stopped, zigged and zagged, and the children ran and fell and got up or stayed down, encountering him randomly rather than chasing him, some of them actually running from him, since all were not charmed by the pig or intrigued by the grease.

Behind him, flashy in red Hong Kong sharkskin, loomed Staretz, Yacovlev, and Rodchenko. The custom suits couldn't contain the bulky bulges that made them all stand so awkwardly.
Chosen by The Iowa Review
Nat Tate was unreal. Hart Crane was real. The story is a fiction on a fiction, the brushy vital verge between fact and dream.
Chosen for this delicious anthology, "A Period of Silence" examines time’s meaning in a marriage.
Winner, STYLE Fiction Prize
