Holes in the Door Posts, Poem by Eugene Mahon

Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

Through the holes
In the doorposts
You can see
Memory
Peering back at you
If you dare to see
What survives
What wouldn’t be
Destroyed.
Cast no cold eye
Horseman:
Put your ear
To the holes in the doorposts
The screams that you hear
Are your own.
–Eugene Mahon
