By MICHAEL BUCKINGHAM GRAY.
HE SLIDES THE CAR sideways, mounts the kerb and smiles. Opens his eyes. Fluorescent tubes replace the moonlight, and a bed supports him instead of a driver’s seat. A doctor looms over him.
Michael Buckingham Gray’s writing has appeared in Flash: The International Short-Short Story Magazine, Microfiction Monday Magazine and elsewhere. His debut fiction ‘And Brings Up Loose Dirt’ was labelled a “masterpiece” by SmokeLong Quarterly. He teaches writing for Work-Shop. His Fortnightly archive is here.
