The Funeral

It was a very hot day. I was watching NatGeo's Afghanistan Revealed when the news came.

"Mona died," my father said. I can hear the sound of a hoe biting into the ground. My mother was digging the grave in the cat cemetery.

Someone else's femur. Dad dug a small hole near the grave and I placed it inside.
