Poem of the Day
Flash Fiction


by Lynn Kozlowski


Mother phones to say there was an old woman who died at the dump. The village dump, where folks toss their garbage down a 60 foot drop. She followed her green garbage bag over the side. Heart attack. Saturday, 10 a.m. Witnesses. Mother said the old woman recently told her she feared dying on her own at home and being left for days, as had the woman with the cats. Mother said to her, "Don't worry. God will provide for you." Mother said, "Put your trust in God."
