“For Luck” in Underwater New York

I have a little story in the wonderful Underwater New York today.

Here’s a little excerpt to tempt you:

Drown the bird for luck, she tells me. It will keep him alive.

All right, I say.

The bird is small and yellow and white and grey, a songbird. When she puts it in my hands, I can feel its pulse shuddering against my palm. Tiny thing, I could crush it just as easily.
