St. Jerome (patron of archaeologists, scholars, librarians, & libraries)

this town is a skeleton

stretching its bones

between these rolling hills.

the silence at night

can be terrifying.

we have trouble

filling up such big houses,

such empty buildings.

it storms, and all the

stained glass windows

rattle in their frames.

there is blood

on my finger

and a song

stuck in my teeth.
