2nd Place Winner of the PM Writing Contest

Jerome of the Rosary by Steven Spitzer A light burned dimly in the corner of the basement, its light slowly creeping into the darkness.  Wooden stairs were just visible, the side of each step tracing a vague, staccato line up towards the ceiling.  A table stood in the center of the room, surrounded by darkness … Continue reading 2nd Place Winner of the PM Writing Contest
