“In the immediate aftermath of orgasm you are surprised to find that you’ve shrunk down to the size of a pin and fallen into her vagina. You land, ankle-deep, and gasp upright, the last tremors of your climax still shivering your skin. The vast muscular walls of her heave above you, ribbed and glistening like the roof of a mouth.”

A short story about unrevealed histories, unexplained shrinking, and vaginas. First published in (Paranthetical) in March 2015. Read online here, or buy a copy here.
