The Wolves

Wolves are at my door again. Their howling keeps me awake at night, their heavy panting fogs my windows. They are hungry. When I go outside to my car, they lope around me, circling me like sharks, occasionally bumping into me roughly, trying to knock me down. I saw my neighbor fall once. Only once. ...

Antivirus for the Soul

They told me at least once every week, for my entire childhood, as far back as I could remember. I had heard it time and time again.
