House of Placid

June 25, 2008
By Amber Ritchie, Boaz, AL

A mistake leaps into vision.
Dancing over flames alight.
In the City of The Cry.
My world is on the tip of a needle.

Let us reach for humility,
in the arsenal aspiration and fear.
The night is upon us in sanctity.

Sleep tonight in remembrance of,
The ones who gave you away.

I say, It’s great to be here.
