Mercy - three micro-fiction pieces
By Richard K. Weems
Published: August 29, 2011.
Three micro-fictions that revolve around homelessness. The first two, "Poor Tree" and the title story, look at characters who wrestle with who they are and what they want without home or family to consider. The third, "Padre," examines the other side of the equation--the lives and faith of those who sacrifice their sanity and well-being on a mission to help out homeless, traumatized teenagers.
