"The Flower" is told in a shifting third-person point of view. It's told some fifty years afterwards. "...Wolfred drifted down into the body that he would not leave again until he had completed half a century of bone-breaking work." "The Flower" was first published in The New Yorker, June 29, 2015, and then was selected for inclusion in The Best American Short Stories, 2016.
