An autistic boy escapes into the woods near his home after his father murders his mother. The father follows him, planning to silence the boy before the police can arrive.
To find out what happens next, read my short story Will the Circle Be Unbroken, which will be published in the December 2020 Island Writer anthology.
“Terror” and “tremble” share the same ancient root.
To be terrified is to fall down upon the terra, the earth,
Which is trembling your bones like an earthquake.
Moon in August morning,
Wayward and wan last night,
Bathing in blue currents.
