My Friend Died of Cancer, but Lives in Moss

I’d been walking alone in the Maine woods six months after she died when someone rushed up behind me.


Chondrus crispus




This is crazy. Why the moss?Make it crazier. Make it shocking.



I’ve been nauseated, but I think I’ll drink tonight. If I can’t drink at a writers’ conference, when can I?

I’m so sick of all the cancer glory. Cancer hasn’t made me a better person! I was a good person before cancer! I just want it to go away so I can be like I already was.
