Short bread cookie tin

Short bread cookie tin


Planting the azalea

She dug up cow bones

The marrow rotting

In to the earth


Rinsed in the sink

Hoping to impress

Her grandsons

A forensic moment


Placing the bones

In an old cookie tin

Tempted to dig again

Baked a pie instead


Glancing at the tin

The old woman smiled

One day a good place

To keep my ashes
