Deep Sixed

by Gary Beck

The light of day has faded. The probing eyes of street lamps emit glimmers on the walls of houses. Vast office buildings stand abandoned. We are reminded of our brief tenancy on the unheeding earth. Concrete crypts await us. The comforts of deception will construct our resting place.
