Hello! Here is a 290 word piece of flash fiction I wrote last autumn when I was experimenting with subtext, seeing how far I could push words to stand for other words. In this piece the word ‘roses’ comes to stand for a different word, which is the real subject matter of the writing. My questions are: which word does ‘roses’ suggest in your mind and at what point in the writing did this become clear?
