Penance: April 20, 2011 - The Package

Prompt: Styrofoam


Original Airdate: Today


The package arrived, one corner dented in by travel. The tape was slit at the ends and all down the top of the box with a razor before the package was unveiled. It was full to all the corners but the dented one with a block of white Styrofoam.

When the foam was lifted, it revealed a smooth face, undamaged by the jostling the package had received. Little chunks of Styrofoam rested in the corners of its eyes and protruded from between its bluish lips. With its snow-covering of foam, the face could almost have been sleeping.
