“Summer, 1979” – Fictive Dream

Red and Yellow by Sadamasa Motonaga (1966)

My latest entry into this chaotic world of singlehood is a flash piece, “Summer, 1979” and was published in Fictive Dream, appropriately, in August, 2021. It’s the story of a desperate teen, who finds herself in a situation that was probably all too common back in the day. Grateful to the editor, Laura Black, for selecting my hormone-addled yarn.
