YASH SEYEDBAGHERI: Celebrate | 50-Word Stories


Nutcracker blasts. My bills bloat. Family demands gifts.
I get replaced at work. They use buzzwords. Streamlining. New direction.
One day, I walk past a poster festooned with a smiling stock family and CELEBRATE in huge block letters.
I ravage it. Leave only disembodied eyes, torn smiles.
This is truth.
