I have a tendency toward the (I’m gonna go with) charmingly distracted Thus did I mistakenly announce that the two publications upcoming in The Eunoia Review were “Are You There, Avatar, It’s Me, The 70s,” and “The Brass Ring.”
Heartfelt, yet inaccurate. “It’s Are You There, Avatar … “and “Girl Feelings.” Strict blooper on my part.
Girl Feelings talks about the importance of naming babies, even if they don’t make it to being babies; about how, “friends remind me that in Buddhist philosophy, a woman doesn’t lose a baby. The baby chooses different parents. I want to cave their hippy skulls in. Why didn’t the baby think I’d be a good mom?”
Girl Feelings originally published in 2010, in the magazine Literary Mama. It will re-publish toward the end of March in The Eunoia Review.
