The old street I grew up on had two cemeteries, both Catholic, crosses and crucibles adorned the sites, words, names, memories, dates, etched into those silent graves. I remember wandering in amongst the crumbling grave stones, heart racing, afraid I'd see a ghost fly out from behind an old headstone. My street was quiet and dusty, potholes common along the faded concrete. Once we accidentally took home someone's ashes from a moving sale. I opened the urn, dark charcoal stared back at me, smell charred and earthy. Animal grave sites peppered out backyard over the years. The saddest part of dealing with a dead animal is the eyes: those eyes that were once full of life now dull and frozen.
