Marshall Texas

Oh hark ye wandering dick.

You've found yourself across the tracks

and you have yet to come undone.

Every step you take leads

you deeper into those

East Texas woods.

Little dilapidated shacks

with rotted wooden frames

housing ancient books

layered in mildew and mites.

The sun peeking through

the leaves above.

What have you found there

deep in the woods?

Let's stay awhile.
