This was an experiment in "micro-fiction" – which I am defining as a complete story in one short sentence. Three pages, one story, with the versions arranged like a palimpsest with the latest on top. The bottom version is the second version, as the first was poorly edited, verging on incoherent. The middle version came about because I realized that my editing had taken out a important plot point – if a one sentence story can be said to have a plot point – and added three words and some punctuation. The top version, the final, trims off seven words and adds some punctuation. I am done I have spent far too much time editing one sentence.
