So many angles, so little time.  Here’s one I’m sure others may try…..

Word Count: 98

Once a Goat

– I miss you

– You miss me taking care of you

– No, really – I know I did you wrong, but baby, you were always it for me

– Now’s a great time to tell me all this.  Once a goat, always a goat.  That’s what my mama taught me.

– I should have been true to you.  I know I deserved it.

– I should have done worse.

– But, honey, now that you’re gone – do you think you’d consider changing me back?

– I don’t reckon I will.  No, sir.  I don’t reckon I will.

  1. Dear Erin,

    Loved this story. Condemned to graze the grass round the witches grave that turned him into the embodiment of what he was. This is like Ouroboros, the mythical snake eating its tail. Reminds me to be nicer to my witch.



Tell me something good.....
