What Is Missed

Everyday she watches detective stories
on TV. It is a great diversion from the

horror stories in everyday life all around
her. She watches as the detectives

discover a human skeleton in the bushes.
What is missed and dismissed is the

magnificent mystery of what is all around 
the bones — lush vegetation, pink and blue 

flowers, ornamental grasses and evergreen 
trees — life. And in the middle of all the 

lush life? A dead, white, human skull.
