apoc seed: a conch-shell pendant

8 conch-shell pendant
originally a good-luck pendant from someone’s beau, sent from an overseas war
now a meaningless trinket, with sentimental value for some poor sucker, perhaps
you an blow into it as a whistle. smells like pine trees — not that any post-poc waster would know what those were

This pendant is a tiny but complete conch shell, shellacked with something like urethane. Its coral-and-peach shell is scuffed but intact. The conch dangles from a twine chain, and its pointy end is obscenely sharp — careful with those fleshy lips of yours, waster.
