Kentucky Fried Rabbit in Bat City Review

Thanks so much to editors Zain Saeed and Leah Hampton. Can’t believe my flash fiction appears in issue #14 alongside such powerhouse writers as Mary Jo Bang and Naomi Shihab Nye.

You’d be surprised how many car racing fans enjoy discussing the intricacies of this amazing young man’s race and nationality. As a person of a mixed racial heritage myself, I am proud as hell that he is in the race –and doing so well to boot! Apparently, Nascar’s fans have similar feelings. Who knew? When I was a kid, when Nascar came on TV, the only thing in those races that seemed at all familiar to me was the commercials.

In 1997 I stood outside this novelty store on Coventry, the artsy district of Cleveland Heights. It was snowing and cold, but the facade of this bright building kept me warm as I fought every snowflake to capture the place. I remember buying the usual supplies there–you know, the staples like edible clothing, handshock gadgets, happily coild slinkys wearing socks like full body tuxedos jumping out of cans of peanuts some peanut maker should actually try to sell, since so many of us eagerly open it only to find —slinkys in socks!

Let this be my final tribute to another fading landmark on its way to becoming a memory, where I shall keep it opened on a more stable contract of rents, and you can still visit the place whenever you’re hungry for that first bite of AWESOME GUM, which turns out to be another overly spicy variety of something the gum makers should explore. Until then, chew on this Coventry!
