Suffer a Witch

Suffer a Witch
Oh, that thick accent of hers. It was eastern European with some Yiddish thrown in, and I was mortified for her. This was a neighbourhood of barbecues and baseball, of red-cheeked blond children who believed they’d grow up to be astronauts. Never mind that all our grandparents had changed their names from Goldstein to Gordon, from Szpilman to Smith. We were Americans.

Lauri Shaw is a contributor to the anthology Hos, Hookers, Call Girls, and Rent Boys published by Soft Skull Press (ISBN 978-1593762414). Her novel Servicing the Pole can be found on her website laurishaw.com.
