“That Ass and the Vein Poppets” @ The Mustache Factor

My flash piece “That Ass and the Vein Poppets” was published at The Mustache Factor.

In this poignant coming-of-age story, a young working-class boy and his estranged drifter of a father come to live together after the sudden death of the boy’s mother. Both father and son soon discover as much about themselves as they do about one another as they stumble together towards redemption and healing, brought together not only by their shared loss, but through their mutual love for the game of baseball.

I’m kidding. That’s not what the story is about. At all.


Published by Dustin Reade, The Mustache Factor is a new webzine for bizarro fiction, cut-ups, surrealist and absurdist texts, dream narratives, and experimental lit.
