WHITE BIRD - Short Fiction by Dennis Lowery

“When you understand that what you’re telling is just a story. It isn’t happening anymore. When you realize the story you’re telling, is just words. When you can just crumble up and throw your past in the trashcan, then you’ll figure out who you’re going to be.” –Chuck Palahniuk, ‘Invisible Monsters’

“I see at intervals the glance of a curious sort of bird through the close-set bars of a cage: a vivid, restless, resolute captive is there; were it but free, it would soar cloud-high.” –Charlotte Brontë

Olivia works for a misogynistic slimeball who made his fortune in New York City real estate. Her life has not turned out as she expected or wanted.

Henry had lost his wife and children in a tragic accident. It’s been years and he doesn’t know if he can keep going… nowhere. And is it wrong to want the pain to go away?

Both are haunted by the past.

Both are alone, caught within circumstances.

Caged.

But then… this holiday season something happens…

PLEASE READ: This--below--is where intelligent comments are exchanged and threads of meaningful and thought-provoking discussion can take place. Some of my favorite stories I've written started with such exchanges and through them I've met some truly wonderful people. This comment section is a place where it's almost old-school in that responses--if one is needed--may not be immediate but will come. Kind of like postal mail correspondence, an easier pace that allows thoughtfulness and not knee-jerk fingers flying over keyboard replies, or something that comes out as top of mind, a stream of conscious superficiality. I hope to hear from and interact with you on anything I've written that sparks a thought or urge to comment.
