The Wallaby & The Python by Alexis Kale

Random story 11.11.5, from Coe Reviewhere’s the link.

If a story consisted entirely of its story, this one could be collapsed into about three sentences. Gulp it down in one bite, move on to the next one. But does the reader owe the author a degree of leeway, of respect, of trust? Ignore the setup and the punchline, let the non-story wrap itself around you, absorb you into itself.

It must be acknowledged that sometimes the non-story turns out to be window dressing, a seduction, a distraction, a setup, lulling you into submission until bam! the punchline swallows you whole.
