Robert Verdon, #343, Bunbury's Secret

in the crisper
that oubliette for vegetables
lies a secret
it is black
many shades of black

in the centre so black it is almost white
it is mysteriously connected
to the cairn we built on Black Mountain,
to mark the times we’ve been to the very top,
that we call Bunbury’s Grave
after the non-existent character in The Importance of Being Earnest

one day, not too soon,
we may remember
that we put it there
