A short story about everyday life, death, war, and humanity published by The Bitter Oleander Press

‘The Day to Day’ is a sombre piece, looking at what makes us human and how easily it can be stripped away.

It revolves around a war-torn city, a home, a husband, a wife, a lunch, and the soldier outside who lies dying.

The Day to Day found its home with The Bitter Oleander: Volume 25, No. 2 (Autumn). If you’d like to take a look, please head on over to their store and purchase a copy of the print!
