“Savages” in The Milo Review

My thanks to editor Rebeca Morales for including my story “Savages” in the summer issue of The Milo Review. This outstanding quarterly  features art, poetry, fiction and non-fiction.

“Savages” involves a lonely women who finds solace in an unusual hobby:

The savages are waiting; they know I’m outside the door. Some I will feed, others I won’t. It’s not like dinner arrives predictably in the wild. This way they stay keen and vigilant, like nature intended.

They live in a long narrow room with glass on one side, and I control everything they need: light, temperature, food, water. I keep a close eye on them and am usually able to save the ones that get sick. I’m a better mother than most.

Thank you for taking a look at my work. I hope you enjoy the story; I am especially fond of this one.
