Matthew Dexter "All Her Piggy’s" Scapegoat Review

I found Matthew Dexter's short-short "All Her Piggy's" in Scapegoat Review. The story uses a collective "we" POV and nicely captures a moment of two girls nearing suicide. The story also incidentally explores issues of looking-glass selves, identities coming to be through shared witnesses of our actions and appearances, and our internalizing of how others react. Texted images of naked bodies, telescope-watching neighbors ... voyeurs of sex and death.

Check this piece out.

Good work, Mister Dexter.
