The Woods

Fandango’s One-Word Challenge: Repudiate

Photo by Lucas Pezeta on

I buried your face

your voice

the smell of your hair

caked with nicotine and  perfume

in the woods behind my house.


I burned your books

your newspaper clippings

about a world gone mad

in a metal drum

in the woods behind my house


I lined a hole

with cheap cement

and dropped your bones into it, with glee

instead of letting them run wild

in the woods behind my house.


I say a curse

and a prayer

for everything that I keep

and sometimes visit, when I am feeling weak

in the Woods behind my house.
