Tombs

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.
