Cold Stone Sobering

Cold Stone Sobering.





Cold stone

sobering place,
Only rocks

star here,
tilting and leaning
like stoned henge
to the song of the
lonely whipporwill.

Shadows dance
under the full moon,
but are they shadows

or wraithes writhing

in despair behind

wrought iron gates.

Empty at night
but this place is...
full of people

Beneath the moss
lie endless masses
coated in white mold
and boxed to prevent
the spread.

Sockets like caverns
provide nests for
the worms,

weaving dreams

long dead.

Stone cold

sober place.
Enter at your own risk
but don't expect to
be leaving soon.
