Reader's Diary #1201- Storm DiCastanzo: Through-street

Storm DiCastanzo's "Through-street" is about an elderly lady named Doris and her rottweiler, Samson. There seems to be a message about the black and white way we label people (and animals) as good or evil, ignoring the fact that everyone tends to have a capacity for both given the right or wrong context.

It's told with a quick, almost matter-of-fact delivery. Like it has a sense of its own brief space and will tell you just the right details to give you pause for thought, the sensibilities of a haiku.
