new microfiction from Wayne Dean Richards


We’d been together years when she suddenly decided her feet had to be perfect.

We’re talking a weekly pedicure to start with, and the application of the finest nail polish money can buy.

We’re talking ointments, creams, balms, special socks, special shoes, inserts.

And this, let’s not forget, from a woman who’d smoked forty fags a day for thirty years and refused to eat
vegetables as a point of principle!

I knew something was wrong - her feet were the giveaway.

All About and Contributors


Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]


If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
