Mo(m/n)ey

 

The child has been hot for days. She shivers, she coughs—she’s weak, that’s clear enough. Mother tries to cool her down, but she fails. The child has been ailing, and now it’s gotten worse. The light, from the lone candle, dies down.

If only Mother had money. If only she did.

Mother wails.

She is gone.
