Roddy Williams – The Atheist Poet

The Village, Episode 079 – Alice in Thunderland #50WordStories

She stands in her garden under torrents, feeling the water running round the feet sinking into the semi-liquid soil.
Horrified neighbours ring her horrified parents who rush to drag her, roots screaming, inside.
