Short and Sweet. (Sweet and Sour?)

I like short stories that are easily understood on the most basic level. Then, and only then, do I want additional things to chew on like symbolism and subtext. It's like the expression about a bird in the hand beating two in the bush--a clear story with a clear point is the bird in the hand and all the rest, if it's there AND I get it, is gravy.

Entertain me, make me get something out of the experience...and then, after that, make me contemplate what the color red meant or if the woman on the beach was a sublimation of the guy's longing to talk to his dead mother.
