Beneath the fallen cross(val)...

Easter Sunday Morning
………………………………………….

Val had a cave
on the outskirts of suburbia
verging on the precipice of acceptance
selling rusty nails, silver spoons,
and thousand dollar dreams
to distraught cats and lonely sparrows,
I was introduced to these folks
by a sad man with a pocketful of hope and a mind full
of redemption,
dominated by donkeys and carpet salesman
surrounded by vultures
who closed the blinds
as the procession walked past
muffling the screams of pain
from a past never to be forgotten
yearning for the springtime sun
to warm their frozen hearts and mend their
brittle bones,
to say I wasn’t curious
would be an understatement,
but remember folks
curiosity killed the cat
satisfaction brought her back
death may understand but waits for no man,
Val had a cave
on the outskirts of insanity
I seldom visit
but when I do I always place
black roses
upon the driven snow…………….

Beneath the fallen cross(val)...
