Mirror Noise By Kathryn Michael McMahon

January 25, 2016 Comments Off on Mirror Noise By Kathryn Michael McMahon

Inside her cave with lilac walls live a Wi-Fi connection, throw pillows, and a full-length mirror.

Within the mirror thrive stretchmarks and all the children she never had. Three. Two girls and a boy with the blackest eyes she’s never seen.

Into her cave stalks a hammer. The hammer likes hanging pictures . . . and smashing things.

The hammer aches to smash the mirror, but cannot. Inside, pliers sigh with relief.
