Biggest Little City in the World

by Roberta Lawrinsky

She was promised by her mother that if she did as she was told she would be taken to

see the wooden Indian tomorrow or the next day and the mother wondered why make

such a promise that would only lead them to get lost in the glitter of Reno's random

streets amid noisy gimcrack slot machines and bright lights shining on people walking

in and out of the glass doors of gambling palaces dropping silver coins and laughing

and then the girl didn't do as she was told. The mother didn't take the girl to see the

wooden Indian.
