This story has never been published anywhere before now. When I was submitting stories regularly, I sent it everywhere; it gathered many, many near-miss rejections--"We love it but..." "Just not quite right..." Then I got deep into writing novels and set aside all short stories for years (I still don't write much short fiction these days). But there's a truth in this little piece that won't quite let go of me. I hope you enjoy it.
