Read a short story!

If it’s hot where you are today and the heat is keeping you inside when you’d rather be out, take a few minutes to read or listen to one of these superior short stories instead. Or, just enjoy this little gem of a poem by Jim Harrison author of Legends of the Fall & Dalva :

three-legged bear two big fish
on a stump. He ate them at night
and at dawn slept like a god
leaning against the stump
in a chorus of birds
.
