Hi Im looking for short story texts that can be analysed through a postmodern lens. Preferably a really short one (roughly 1000 words)

WHat i have in mind currently is The Fifth Story by Clarice Lispector. It is a good example of metafiction. However what I feel like it lacks is exploration of the chaos of the world, which was a big factor as to why postmodernism came about

So any recs? One that is short, uses postmodern techniques like metafiction, and talks about chaos, hopelessness, absurdity or instability of identity. Thanks!

Not exactly sure on the wordcount for it, but jorge luis borges the library of babel might be a good one. I used it for my English Extension 1 research task at the end of last year. It's about challenging the notion of singular narratives / absolute interpretations. Easy to read too
