The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


Here I am…
by Angela Yuriko Smith

My remains remain
entombed here beneath the road
The runoff and I
running off as one.
My temporary shelter
becoming my tomb.
I saved my planet
and reduced my carbon print
by reducing me.
Reused to nothing—
ultimate eco warrior
I have left no trace.
Now a pile of rag
and flesh. The ants recycle
and put me to use.
