Congratulations to Donald D’lo, whose story “Alejandro” was chosen by Meg as last week’s winner! Donald wins the Press 53 publication of his choice and a chance at getting published in Prime Number Magazine. His winning story appears below.
Mama prepared a meal of country fried chicken and rice before Pastor Brown arrived for supper. The reverend knew we were on welfare since 1992, but didn’t even mention us in prayer. Daddy had me poison Alejandro, the last of grandma’s chickens. We ate the rice, and later daddy lifted the pastor’s wallet.
