The Bottom Garden

Published Jan 25, 2019 · 4,261 words (16 minutes) · 374 views

Fantasy Literary Fiction Strange

"The Bottom Garden" was originally published in the anthology Unfit for Eden. Unfit for Eden is how most every abandoned or lost creature feels. “The Bottom Garden” is an attempt to tell story about childhood loss. It’s actually one of my most personal stories. It responds to a line in an Adrienne Rich poem, “The child’s soul carries on/in the wake of home” (In the Wake of Home, 1983), weaving a travel blanket from the scraps of the lost warmth, safety, and nurture of family and home.
