Rites of Spring

A list of things to do this spring. A fantastic foray into the next couple of months. This is not a continuous story but rather a sequence of flash fiction chapters. Created using a shorter, earlier version published in the online magazine "> kill author" and a recent springtime entry on my blog marcusspeh.com — I'm working on a German translation of the original "Rites of Spring" to be published here, too. This story will only be online for a while as a teaser for the publication of my collection of short stories by MadHat Press | http://bit.ly/Hs6npD


7. Butterflies

Fifteen monarch butterflies. Six and twenty snow drops. Ribbons with hearts on them. A dozen blown out eggs painted as Chinese policemen. Lost in last year’s brown leaves: my glasses. Wandered off by themselves to look for the ridge of a nose that knows what it wants. Bunny-shaped mole on the skin on the back of my hand. Hundreds of white horse hairs clinging to my spring step. Greetings to all wayfaring strangers lost in elaborate egg hunts! Nothing can hold us back now: the best time of the year is upon us!
