'Dust to Dust' by Dreena Collins

Behind the chest of drawers, I find a garden of you. Your sunflower pendant, searching for the sky. Bobby pins scattered as a cloud of tadpoles. Two hairbands looped together in a kiss.

And the ring you said was stolen, wrapped in mottled tissue, now crumbling to ashes and dust.

'Dust to Dust' was first published in The Dribble Drabble Review, Spring 2020.
