#amreading a Short Story: “One’s Share,” by Olga Zilberbourg

One has a child with one’s partner, a shared child, only to learn that the relationship with one’s child is individual, solely one’s own. The partner’s relationship with the child has little bearing, and only indirectly, on one’s own relationship with the child. The partner does make the child laugh. That can be shared. A good laugh – and then back to one’s own solitude, now with the child.

— “One’s share” is part ot the collection like water and other stories (wtaw press, 2019)
