When you were seven your brother showed you a trick. A needle–sewing needle–stuck right through the middle of his index finger. Suspended there, bloodless and impossible.
My very short prose piece “Sticking A Needle Through Your Finger” appears in Brittle Star. It is a story about a small boy who sticks a needle through his finger.
More recently, another of my short stories “Laitka” also appears in Brittle Star.
