The Keyhole Heart

The Keyhole Heart (Short Story/Humor)

the keyhole heart“A laugh-out-loud look at a questionable, head-scratching, homemade alcohol-fueled surgical procedure in the Old West; Smith shines in short form, and ‘The Keyhole Heart’ is no exception.”

Old Doc Honeymill’s got the cure for your heartburn; a brand new, slightly rusty, mechanical, keyhole heart! Sure, it might be overkill. Sure, you’ll probably get sepsis. And sure, Doc Honeymill might not actually be a doctor.

But hey. This is the Old West. You take what you can get.
