Nelly Fallower's Streetcar

This story is not currently available online.

As it was her turn to direct, Nelly Farrower had the choice of plays and chose Streetcar. There followed the usual bitching about how everybody’d seen it and why not something experimental for a change, of which Nelly disdained to hear a word while she budgeted, cleared the schedule with the house committee, ordered the script.

Modern Love

Sometimes he comes up behind me at the stove and lifts my skirts and we do it right here in the kitchen like a couple of kids. Quite a change from Noah who could only stay hard by imagining me being sawn in half. Robbie is the tallest, nicest man I’ve ever gone out with. His back and shoulders are broad and strong and make me think of the word wingspan. When we go to sleep he folds me in his arms as gently as if I were an origami bird. But nothing is perfect. He is dead broke. And worse.

A Rented Room

This story is not currently available online.

Wally’s was the corner room; two rooms, in fact, counting the small bedroom, with a porch large enough for the two rocking chairs and a view of the old watch factory. He’d lived there twelve years, through two owners. With Joseph, the new landlord, he’d grown to a position of responsibility: in exchange for ten dollars weekly off the rent, he swept the halls and kept a set of keys in case any of the tenants lost theirs and needed to be let into their rooms. Joseph lived across town, and didn’t like to be called over for every little nuisance.
