Who We Are We Will Become


Three people at the bookstore’s café. Two of them, together, arrive together, but are slowly drifting apart. The third, a stranger, already seated, observes, interacts with one of them briefly, and records.

Sooner or later, we will all be (or perhaps we’ve all been, or will become) each of these people.

The Kindness of Strangers, my latest very short (prose) semi-fiction telling of this event has been published in the Summer Issue (#4.2) of *82 Review, available today either online or in print. I’m grateful to the editors for accepting my work and very happy to find it in such good company. The entire volume is well worth reading.

(I think you won’t hate it.)


This is my 2nd appearance in *82 Review. My poem, Charlie, appeared in Issue 1.1 in March of 2013.

  1. this is the kind of thing you read and read again and then take it away with you, cradling it in a quiet place inside. lovely. just lovely.

  2. This reminds me very much of my time spent with my grandma, these years, the main reason I try to visit Belgium once a year. She used to be my best friend,. Now, I still very much enjoy her presence, but have to repeat everything ten times and that can become exhausting. While I used to talk to her for hours in the past, now, we “chat” for one hour. She’ll ask the same questions over and over again and I would patiently give the same answer. Over and over again. I love her very much!
