Heartland by Gay Degani

She escaped to Iowa thinking corn, pigs, and a football hero. She scored a double-wide in the weeds, a gravel courtyard of armed theatrics, drunken Euchre games with the scabby tweaker next door. She stayed because of Matt, his face angled , his tongue probing, his rough hands a constant surprise.

Gay Degani has published in journals and anthologies including The Best of Every Day Fiction 2008 and TWO (2009). Her stories online can be read at The Battered Suitcase, Night Train, Every Day Fiction, 10 Flash, 3 A.M. Magazine, as well as other publications. She blogs at Words in Place and is the editor of EDF’s Flash Fiction Chronicles.
