while looking for mushrooms at the woodlawn cemetery in the bronx
david horvitz and i came a across
A REAL HUMAN SKULL ON THE GRASS!!!!!!!
we carried it around in a paper bag for about an hour but
after baffled discussions regarding its origin,
i foolishly asked my mom, who works at a cemetery in sacramento,
what we should do.
she seemed very frightened and said we had to report it.
i gave it to a security guard who said casually, but over and over,
“you can get these things on the internet. probably some voodoo thing”
but he would not give it back to us.
it is odd to feel like a failure for not being nuts enough
and relief for having evaded the risk being haunted.
