Letting Go

Without ceremony I binned your letters
Shredded and tossed in an Ikea office bin
Transferred to a Panda Grey
Not to be recycled
Never to be re-read
I watched them dragged and hoisted onto a conveyor belt
Pierced by gigantic Panda teeth
Imagined them flung in a land fill or incinerated
Leaving behind the smell of a Sweet Afton
The taste of a Blue Nun
And memories as seemingly random

as the toss of a dice.
