    Hi, Mark. Thanks for commenting on and faving "Bogdan." Hoped the Dad reference in the first line would resonate in the last line but I guess that didn't work. Ah, well...
    Flash fiction vs. poetry--sometimes hard to tell the difference!

    Hey, Mark! I remember you from (I think) Eric Bosse's flash fiction office on AZ, years ago. Nice to see you here.
