MayDay Flash - 'May Already' by Sherri Turner

May already and the Christmas decorations only just back in the box and they’ll have to be out again next week, it feels like. May already and a whole heap of bills still not paid, floors not washed, pounds not lost, stories not written, people not met, places not seen, life not lived. May already. How in hell’s name did it get to be May already?

  1. I like this all the more because of its brevity. In unadorned but immediately vivid prose, the writer implies the sense of time passing, of missed opportunities and of regrets. Clever use of the flash-fiction form, I thought.
