Relay – Foragers

Foragers by Jaime Fountaine, X-R-A-Y Literary Magazine.

Foragers catches a broken moment in time when Mom’s new maybe-boyfriend, Jeff, cooks a ‘family’ dinner. It’s a ritual ceremony where the ingredients are quite toxic, and I’m not talking about the wild mushrooms. There’s a lesson waiting right in the middle for the narrator, whose anger is a dull knife.
