The Flood by Jessica Otto

The road stretches until the seams fill with water; lapping at the concrete, curious and fickle like the memory of a tide. When the road becomes a river it does not twist like light in a prism or shatter and remake itself by magic. A river is more open minded.

Jessica Otto lives in the marshland of Arkansas with her husband and many cats. She is earning an MFA in Creative Writing at Goddard College and edits trapeze magazine (@trapezemag), a twitter zine of speculative fiction and poetry. Her chapbook "Wormwood" is published by Ten Pages Press.
