Tombs

Zamboni.SilouetteI

Tombs

Photographs,

bleeding eyes

staring back at me

memories

dusted each day

icons of my history

organized,

archived,

sepia bound in frames,

sepia a color that’s not,

people long buried

in catacombs

never visited

never heard again.

The black crow

visits them today

cawing for their souls

bleakly petrified

never to rise again.
