Fiction by Sean Alan Cleary
Paul has a problem, which is he cannot seem to wake up early enough. He likes the silence of mornings in spring before the birds even wake — the flat light of May mornings in Cambridge. Now, though, even in the dark, he hears his son stirring in the other room.

They were going to hang John.
John was five. He lived on a farm with his aunt and uncle and some cousins, and an eighty-year-old grandmother they called Big Ma.
Big Ma wasn’t big. She was a frail old lady, and they all treated her like she might break at the slightest touch. She never did, break, though, until John broke her.
