The Killing Box

written by: James Gabriel

 

Sitting in
the garage
is the
killing box.

Orange, it
stands out
on the counter
next to earth
splattered lawn
equipment
and a broken
bicycle.

Its world is ashen.
Shells of intricate
brown and black design,
grave markers.

The residents
long vacated.

Vaporized
in a sea
of white foam.

A holocaust,
smelling of salt.
