Apogee – “Old Maid”


“A Bright Hand in Darkness”, 2014 by Eliza Swann. HD Video Still, 6:16, The Blizzard

Touched and honored to have a new story up in the latest issue of Apogee.  Check out this visually enticing new interactive issue.  Sex, tricycles, young love and the performance of grief.  Here’s the full text of my story.  Or, Check out this video recording of my reading of “Old Maid” from the Catskills.

Here’s a sample:

We were just two small twigs then, riding a red tricycle, getting high on pizza in the back of a pickup, jet-setting in Ohio, bass fishing with his father.

“Just look,” he said from where we stood on the pier. “And let me push you.”
