I've written another .
This one is about the Mississippi River and the moon,
and it's the first in a little while
that I've been okay with tooting about:

@acdw There's definitely an ebb and flow to this. I like how the call-out to the reader is handled. It can be difficult to not make something like that feel forced or gimmicky. Talking to the reader in this feels like a natural turn of events, and that's nice.

You should submit this somewhere! I could totally see this in a lit mag or a contest.

@mara_cav_ wow, thank you! I was worried it might be clunky. Maybe if I "unpublish" this real quick I can submit it somewhere.
