writer’s wednesday [benedict]

“Timmy Lee threw the carton of milk at her and it caught her square in the chest, exploded like a bomb. Milk gushed down her front, splashed the kitchen table. A few drops spattered the stovetop, sprinkled Timmy Lee. Torrey staggered back, fetched up against the refrigerator. She blinked, wiped the half-rancid milk out of her face.”

– “Hackberry” from Town Smokes, Pinckney Benedict
