Amanda Bubble Composes a Fifty-Word, Third-Person Contributor Bio for an Anthology on the Theme of Vulnerability

 
Amanda Bubble evanesces, is ephemeral, is the empress of ice cream in the swelter of July. She is filmy, all shimmer and wobble. A sharp look destroys her. She is the fragility of the shell around the embryo of the eaglet, dreading the tiny beak and its pip, pip, pip.
