Short Fiction: “The Alligators’ Gods”

micah-dean-smith-indiana-review

My story, “The Alligators’Gods,” (originally published by Indiana Review) was featured recently over at LitRagger. Here’s a sample from the story:

They had little alligators, dog-sized alligators, and big alligators. They tied them down across the hood of the truck, tied a few across the top. They draped rope over the sides and artfully knotted alligators into slings along the back fenders. Little ones were strung up behind the tires like mud-flaps, and one was even tied across the dash, its tail hanging out the window.
