Deep in the woods

He was swinging the axe into the log when he heard the voice again, “Kill them.” Norm heard it as plainly as if someone was standing next to him. He left the axe head in the stump for a few minutes and looked around the snow covered woods. Nothing. There was little wind, so he knew it was not the dead branches running together. The skeleton forest spread out in front of him, quietly.

He wiped his black and red checkered coat sleeve across his brow.
Then he tilted back his cap, and looked again at the horizon, taking in a breath.

He held the breath. Then let it go. He looked at the paisleys the exhaled breath created.

The promise of snow was imminent. He took the axe from the stump,
and swung it over head.

"Kill them," it said again. Norm stood with the axe over his head.
