Speaking of Short Stories, here is one by Andrew Verster.

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER

The stuffing’s coming out of your chair.
We are all losing ours as well.
Aren’t you going to do something about it?
At some moment you give up and let nature take its course.
That is defeatist.
Realistic.
It’s avoiding the issue.
Is that bad?
One can’t let circumstance ride roughshod over you.
Why not?
You must take a stand about everything.
Even things you can’t change?
That’s different. You must be realistic.
Look life right in the eye?
Something like that.
Say what you think?
Yes.
You are the ugliest person I’ve ever seen.
You’re no oil painting either.
But I won that round.
Because you got in first?
No, because I said what was on my mind.
The truth never hurts.
You ARE the ugliest person I’ve ever seen.
You look like a Tretchikoff.
Now THAT hurt.
Bye, mom. See you around.
Bye darling. Close your eyes when you cross the road.
