Last Work in Paris -- A story of hope, insanity and violence, on a train.

Fiction, short-story, 12 page zine, 5.5' x 4.25', black and white. Approximately 1,750 words. Contains violence.

It begins:

The man in the brown suit sits next to me, perfectly still, eyes forward and hands folded in his lap. The suit is wrinkled, perhaps faded from frequent use, though seemingly well cared for. I tell myself that he wears it every day, no matter the occasion.

I sit next to him, counting, twenty-one, twenty-two, twenty-three.

A moment later, with a regularity that is rare in human form, the man leans back and sucks in a deep breath. A quick exhale follows. It has been this way for three hours now, and though I began the journey diverting my attention out the window of the train, trying to conceal my annoyance more from myself than from the man in the brown suit, with his horrible breathing, that feeling quickly gave way to intense curiosity followed by a growing frustration.
