"The Desires of Houses" by Haddayr Copley-Woods
"The Desires of Houses" by Haddayr Copley-Woods deals with the reaction of a house to the daily routine of its inhabitants. Copley-Woods writes with a grounded clarity that balances the erotic elements to create a story that is beautifully sexy, and never crass or dirty. The house does not lust after the woman; it cherishes her in a way that her partner does not. The house’s voice is charmingly dreamy, as if it is not quite used to expressing itself in such a concrete fashion. The effect is summed up by the last line, which is nothing short of perfect.
"The Desires of Houses" is a gorgeous story and I highly recommend checking it out.
