Box Cutters: excerpt #3

1397915_598757960190403_1143047675_oFor the six days leading up to the official release of my chapbook, Box Cutters (sunnyoutside press), I’m posting the first sentence or two of each story in the chapbook, one each day, as a kind of teaser for the book.

Today is excerpt #3!

But you don’t have to wait until November 12 to order your copy. If you like something you see and want to read more, you can head over to sunnyoutside and pre-order your copy now.

When I come home, I can smell you in the house. It’s not something definite, like perfume or shampoo—you never liked perfume, always used the cheap store-brand shampoo—but there’s a space in the house, a faint potpourri like your extract over a censer, the essence of you wafting.

I write fiction and teach college writing and literature. I'm the author of the story collection There Is No Other Way to Worship Them, the novel Hagridden, and the flash fiction chapbooks Box Cutters and Where There Is Ruin.
