Spectral Stories for Hopeful Monsters

And now we find ourselves

gazing into overgrowth,

from a place where there

may be no remorse

for time’s passing,

where even the earth breathes

sighs of relief

almost audible

until a path

beaten through this abandoned place

betrays the image of desolation.

We are not alone.

 

Where monsters prevailed

we creatures now follow,

And the ghosts

that remain in the landscape

are poised, ready

to speak of stories

sketched in a spectral alphabet

for us, their audience,

the ancestors of the world

who seek to survive

in places made for ourselves.

Yet are we hopeful enough

to face this predicament?
