Suzanne Verrall works for the Adelaide Hills Library Service. She has written over 300 reader reviews for the South Australian Public Libraries Catalogue, and her article on lesbian fiction appeared in Archer Magazine in February 2016. Suzanne’s flash fiction stories are all exactly 150 words in length.

What surprising, fascinating stuff can you tell us about the origin, drafting, and/or final version of this triptych?

      This piece began as a single-sentence micro fiction. The thought of poetry crept in. Wow. Who knew vertical lines held so much more power than horizontal ones?! They surely do, though.

      Then came the idea that a poem is not a garden. But it is a garden because it started to bloom. Fruit and flowers, what’s to be done? Just take the triptych and run with it, I say.
