Congratulations to Joe, whose story “Self-Guided Study” won last week’s contest. Joe wins the Press 53 publication of his choice, and a chance at having his story published in a future issue of Prime Number Magazine. His winning story appears below.
You undress in a box of light. This is another wisdom you teach. This is extra credit. Your body is sweet cheese advertised in a dozen different sparkling traps, in pantsuits and convertibles, between vertical blinds, and I wait around the edges, careful not to touch. Not now. Later, when the spring sleeps.
