WINNER OF THE 2022 AESTHETICA CREATIVE WRITING AWARD
The Aesthetica award is a celebration of innovative new writing from across the globe.
“Flotsam” is my story of a woman whose life is shattered when her husband is accused of being a sexual predator.
“Yes, I know,” Hema said in her special Hema voice, “but the patients don’t want your fingers in their mouths anymore.” When I asked to talk to Dr. Mardone, she said, “Just be glad you’re getting two months notice.”
What my husband has to do with dental hygiene someone please explain to me.
No Longer Speaking To
Margo because she wouldn’t let Holly come for her playdate as if we were contaminated.Henrietta who should have rushed to my side and if not you who can I trustStella because you could at least text the person who organized your daughter’s birthday party when you were sickGretchen who talked to the reporters and said oh yeah for sure when she knows nothing, and sang at our wedding
(am I supposed to overdose or)
The Aldermans. The Chows. Every single shit in Pilates. My husband is not a predator, and it’s not my fault.
