Midwest Literary Magazine is defunct, but read the story here.
My story “Eliza’s Body as Sacrament of the Grace I Sunk From” originally appeared on page 61 of the September issue of Midwest Literary Magazine, which was titled “Broken Spades.” The story is a lamentation on a semi-functional relationship that didn’t pan out, but that coasted for a while on sex alone. It’s also about a dumb kid who doesn’t have the slightest idea how to be a decent partner.
Maybe the piece will one day be read again by human eyes. Only time will tell.
