Miasmatic Rapture from the Grounds


United States
35° 47' 36.9852" N, 86° 19' 2.6112" W

The houses of the holy made from rotting pine and ichor
the soft sinew of fallen things abounds
the stench of decomposing things could palpitate a figure
in miasmatic rapture from the grounds
Could we recall the odors of an element’ry school
by huffing happened hosts and haunts held here?
Beholding all the traces of a trenched Stygian rule
Nostalgic sacrilege remains the sentinel, I fear.
