The Ghosts in West TexasV+ Fiction Award Winner
Donnie always thought her mother’s house was haunted. Not because she ever saw ghosts in the white lace curtains on her window, the small one with the wooden frame that looked out at barren land. One night after finding bliss between the gentle opening of someone else’s lips, she came home and dug through drawers for a whittling knife. She found one and engraved the initials of a face that morphed slowly, and bitterly from lover to stranger. But that wasn’t the kind of ghost she thought lured in the halls of her childhood home.
Electoral Politics are so 2020
If you’ve seen it once you’ve seen it a million times. Bernie Sanders, sitting at the inauguration, dressed in a casual parka and giant mittens. The only politician there who looked both the most comfortable and anxious to leave. No worries Bernie, bored constituents stuck at home because of the virus are ready to teleport you across movies, major pop culture events, and beyond. This, the meme that has spawned a million ice cold feminist takes, is yet another meme-fication of politicians that I desperately hoped we could leave in the year that brought us a pandemic.
