Zugg’s Song

the road is long
horizon o’er horizon
the past is here
constantly dying

the flowers grow
in soil dry and rancid
the future’s gone
murky, cannot grasp it

these walls, these caves contain
the moments that have made us
flow in, flow out like air
these moments can suffocate us

if we let them
if we let them

This poem is part of a collection called Shards of Kardpaz, which are texts I’ve written for the world of the Dungeons & Dragons campaigns I run with students at my school.
