Gamesmaster, by Bruce Arbuckle

Your hobbies include mind games and gardening. The later brought joy, the former pain. You abandoned me, I dumped you on the compost heap in my head. Now toxins leech out from my decaying memories of you, and my fertile soul absorbs your poisons. You always did play to win.

A 50-word story written by Bruce Arbuckle, inspired by the Freewriters Writing Prompt on Hive, “compost”
