the goodbye party

When we went to light the fire last night, we found the fire pit filled with the ashy remnants of papers and pictures and a charred metal frame that said, "I love you."

How fitting, we remarked, someone else's dead love going up in smoke, climbing into the atmosphere and disappearing over the Puget Sound towards the Olympics, while we stood around the flames for hours after sunset, until white stars appeared overhead, and a man in a dune buggy threw a bucket of water onto the fire. 

Exactly. Exactly like that.
