"wag" sighting: Lisa Moore's Open

from the story "Azalea" in Lisa Moore's short story collection, Open.

The cat springs into an overhanging branch. The branch wags violently. Two sparrows rise up, fly over the Buddha. The rain is harder now. The fly is inert. It may have died there. She sees the wings are dusty. It's covered in a webbing. Had she imagined its legs rubbing together? It's been dead for years.

Lisa Moore's Open is available as an unabridged audiobook from Rattling Books, narrated by the author, Holly Hogan and Mary Lewis.
