I Wish I Had Those Gasoline Pellets

by Carl Kegerreis

The tale begins amidst the Vietnam War, wherein a young Captain of the Air Force of the United States, Oley Washington Jr., faces the hardship of being stranded in the middle of enemy territory. His fate is left to the hands of captors, who take Oley in as a prisoner and leave no breadcrumbs behind. As a result, the captain is considered MIA by the country he once served, just as many of his brothers in arms. Many years later, the FBI retiree Haywood and his wife Lilly are enjoying their retirement on a trip that takes them to Canada and back to the US.

When they get to Detroit, an idea pops into Haywood’s mind: he would write a book about the homeless community in the city, and his curiosity regarding the poor dwellers of that area takes him to witness a bizarre phenomenon that defies logic and common sense.
