The Lonely Heart of Maybelle Lane by Kate O’Shaughnessy
Most people don’t think fate has a sound. But it does. Everything has a sound if you listen carefully enough. For example: Loneliness sounds like the drip-drop of a leaky faucet, or the clomp of footsteps in an empty parking lot. Dread is the vrr-vrr-vrr- of a car engine that won’t start. Love is the sound of Momma strumming her guitar and singing softly beneath her breath. And happiness? At the time, I didn’t know what the sound of happiness was. I hadn’t found it yet.
