“JT looks like the other boys in shorts and t-shirts with skateboards emblazoned on the front; Cousin Dylan is, well, Cousin Dylan, a curly-haired ginger with a speech impediment that sounds like a single-stroke engine missing half its stroke; and there’s Marybeth pushing her way to the front of a bio-diversity panel suspended from the ceiling, telling the other kids that what they don’t understand is how this leaf there, this one, the one she’s pointing to, is different than all the other leaves on display. The colors make it stand out.”


Split Lip has published “Personal Day,” a flash-fiction piece. It’s about 500 words; you could read it on your lunch break or in between things on your to-do list or just hanging out. Many thanks to all those involved!
