"Mission" is a very short story that covers: Ikea, shoplifting, Band of Brothers, talking to God, semi-homelessness, and houseplants.
The Writing Studio at MICA, where I work, published "Mission" in a chapbook on the theme "Frequently Unasked Questions." The staff, all writers and artists, wrote, designed and assembled it (literally--I stapled). It's such an pleasure to work with talented artists in my day job.
Last spring "Mission" was published around the same time as "Egg Noir," which was published in Knee-Jerk magazine.
