And for today’s micro-story in response to the #vss365 prompt – “Alien” is a Dear John letter.
I found an alien in the kitchen today. Us.
Soon we will be in bed. You will kiss my forehead and turn away, to your phone.
I will pretend to read, but really look at your graying head until I fall asleep.
The alien needs to go. He isn’t home.
We aren’t a home.
