“The Kiss” by Kim Curran (Mahvesh Murad)

February 14, 2015

"When people first talked about the events of the fifth of May it was with hushed voices and bowed heads. An unusually respectful four days passed before the jokes started to fly around the internet. And fly so fast it was possible to believe, by tracking the number of posts and calculating the amount of time it takes to craft a witty comment in one hundred and forty characters, that the first online comment had actually been made before The Blast had taken place."

"The Kiss" was first published on Pornokitsch on 28 October, 2014.
