into the fells

©2023 michael raven

perhaps
-- just maybe
i am a little tempted

that succubus promise
of living beyond the edge
of a world gone mad
from lost lunchboxes
to rude shouts in the
assembly above
with their tanks
and their bombs
and their guns
zombi zombi
hey hey hey
hey ho

toss that phone
onto that wide mountain
heath and scrub
skittering on scree
and into the fells
to follow living stone
and bone etched
with indian ink
