Road to Hell by Janice Cuevas

I walked along a gravel road.

A man sliced his wife’s throat. A smile spread across the woman’s face as her head tilted back revealing the bone and ruptured muscle tissue.

He punctured his stomach and stayed silent as blood spilled over his hands.

I continued my stroll.

As I crossed to the other side, the elderly woman with the gardening gloves poured maggots over the grass. Up ahead stood a three-foot man. His hands were the size of a toddler’s shoe. He gave a crooked smile that could make a man’s anus curdle.

He waved.

And I waved back.
