BECCA AT THE END OF THE WORLD

by SHIRA LIPKIN

I nestle the video camera on its makeshift tripod, carefully centering my daughter’s image. She tucks her hair behind her ear and gives a strained smile. She is sixteen, and that hair is long and golden–kissed light brown and straight; she has the gangly grace only teenagers have, that sleek gazelle form. She is wearing khaki shorts and a striped tank top, and the bite mark on her arm is already putrefying.

About This EpisOde

Shira Lipkin has managed to convince Interfictions 2, Clockwork Phoenix 4, Stone Telling, Mythic Delerium, and other otherwise-sensible magazines and anthologies to publish her short fiction and poetry, and has not completely adjusted to winning the Rhysling Award. She fights crime with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, does six impossible things before breakfast, and would like a nap now. Her daughter just started college and is not a zombie. She still does not have a monkey.
