Here is my first Trashy Story, Thirst. It turned out a bit more serious than I had intended, but what I have been mentally working through naturally found its way here. It was inspired by a water bottle I found when hiking along the canyon trail at Lost Maples Natural Area in Texas. It was left haphazardly at the edge of the canyon wall, but even then I couldn’t help but think of the story I’m sharing with you.
I think I added a nice style with how the paragraph format helps to unfold the story. It’s almost similar to the free verse plays with style, but it’s in the form of a short story.
