The headless man

http://www.cicadasculpturegallery.com

The man with his head
hacked off
right below the chin
fifty years later
in blackness
sits on the concrete bench
near the haunted house
a fan of leaves in hand
keeps the flies
from attacking his open neck
swings his legs
to a rhythm
waiting for someone

[Based on a story I heard on a journey I took in late 1997 I wonder if the story still continues to haunt people..I add the year and the last line to spice up the story.]
