A SHORT, SHORT STORY
BY MARY ELIZABETH (LEACH) RAINES
That time I came in as a fruitfly, I recognized clearly that we’re all One. Humans don’t know this, but fruitflies do.
I’d landed on a banana peel in your kitchen, along with hundreds of my mates. I mean mates literally. Man, was I one horny fruitfly!
Then I saw that you were ready to squish me. As your thumb loomed over me, I screamed, “Don’t do that! We are the same! We are One!” I guess I wasn’t very articulate. You/I squished me anyway.
