Wherein Jen Rose Yokel reads her poem “When I See It” and her piece “Beneath the Flood,” Rebecca Reynolds reads her poems “Dear Students” and “The Farmer,” Jonathan Rogers reads his short story “When the Angel Stirred the Waters,” and Drew Miller thanks you for listening to Season 1 of The Molehill Podcast.
First published in Volume 2 of The Molehill, “When the Angel Stirred the Waters” is something of a riot. The story unfolds in the backwaters of Florida and directly downstream from Flannery O’Connor. It involves a mermaid, a fistfight at a beloved whirlhole, and for those of you who are curious, yes—an alligator.
