EPITAPH FOR CREATURES FROM THE DEPTHS

 

There are no more

I’ve seen them all

the Creatures from the Depths

They were less Gruesome

but more Ludicrous

At least in my imagination

I served victory over them

up

Like sushi raw

but on ornate china plates

For Dignitys sake

Mimicking resources

they reveled in

Stalwart skeletons

Remnants of Dark Epics

lost to Oral Traditions

now extinct



Light filters in

Occasionally

illuminating lichens green

the Beginning

of the Overcoming

and the drying out

of What Could Never Be

Simply Poetry Interrupted

No more and Never Finished

than Stonehenge

Near the water still

but aching for a return

to Anonymity
