George Allen Miller’s story “Just Five Minutes” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 3 March 2017.
This story started as a writing prompt in an online class run by The Brainery and taught by Jerome Stueart. The prompt was to write about your city. Gentrification is tearing through DC and changing the city in drastic ways. This story evolved from my experiences with gentrifiers and families that have lived in my neighborhood their entire lives.
