Kelsey Larson: ‘Only half of all creatures are real’

From a flash fiction:

“What kind of bird is that?” I ask a man in a uniform, pointing to a marvelous skeleton covered in feathers.

“No kind,” he says. “It’s imaginary.”

“Isn’t this a museum?” I ask.

“Sure,” he says. “But only half of all creatures are real.”
