I am late to the Course but I thought I would still Submit.

My Short is based on Amanda Baker, taken from The Spoon River Anthology.

Amanda Baker

HENRY got me with child,

Knowing that I could not bring forth life

Without losing my own.

In my youth therefore I entered the portals of dust. Traveler, it is believed in the village where I lived That Henry loved me with a husband’s love

But I proclaim from the dust

That he slew me to gratify his hatred.
