the term Sub-Prime refers to loans or mortgages supplied to those with lower credit ratings. according to Yahoo Answers, Sub-Prime could also mean stay away, corrupt, better luck next time, a sucker's born every minute and clean up your act.
i find these other definitions interesting because they aptly describe Mike, the factory and the people he meets there.
although the story is short, it is well-written, quite intense and very realistic. it deals with the human condition, the choices one makes and how far an unemployed person would go to survive.
Mike gets help from a Roma waif working alongside him at the plant. This plain girl, who speaks almost no English, does his killing for him while Mike takes over most of the plucking. They have an unspoken contract, as Mike sees it.
Mike embarks on a curious mental journey in this single week of day labor, with this innocent yet highly suggestive relationship with a co-worker and with his gradual transformation into a killer. There is the intimation that darker things lurk beneath the surface, and all these elements threaten to combust at any moment in this intricate and beautiful story.
Writing without experience is akin to walking into total darkness without a light. Sub-Prime is not a fun tale, but it's truth, and truth, even well stated, is stark, in-your-face, and eye opening. If you have the courage to read Sub-Prime you are going to experience truth told with an eloquence that is difficult to find today.
It only takes twenty minutes or so to read the entire piece. I guarantee the reader will find the time spent on this story well-worth the effort.
