Back in December of 2021 they had a call for “One Sentence Shit” and I knew I had something to submit! This story came from a prompt in the SmokeLong Quarterly workshop to write one breathless sentence. I was listening to the Saint Motel song “At Least I Have Nothing” and my imagination went into overdrive. This sentence came out and the wonderful Christopher Allen gave me feedback to polish it. And now it has a home, paired with a beautiful image by Andrea Damic!
