Fiction: A story in Our Stories Literary Journal

It’s called “Power Ballad,” and frankly I’d thought it was unpublishable. I guess not! It’s about a guy with bad hair trying to pick up a woman with a bad tattoo.

    Thanks, C! Yeah, it’s a jokey story. Not sure AT ALL why I wrote it. I think I wanted to just have fun with it. but the mag i wrote it for ended up shutting down submissions so it stayed in my computer for a month or two until I sent it to Our Stories.

    The smoking people follow me everywhere. I don’t smoke. Never have.

    Didn’t know you needed help kicking a nicotine habit, Meakin… Anyway, loved the story. Even if the whole tattoo thing threw me off. Didn’t know just how pathetic this love was supposed to be initially. I think that means I haven’t talked to you enough recently to keep myself abreast of all the witticisms that float through your brain.

    Miss ya,
