Factory.
Massive, abandoned.
Machinery. Metal dinosaurs.
Tangled debris. Ceiling, leaking.
Pitch-dark.

Footsteps.
Flashlights. Shadows.
Graffiti. Glass, broken.
Odors, chemicals. Water, drips.
Echoes.

Hallway.
Leather, squeaking.
Keys. Rattling, jingling.
Vest, hot. Nerves, raw.
Sweating bullets.

There,
Hanging, swaying.
Body. Blue, bloated.
Steel rafter. Taut rope.
Dead.

Shoes.
Made for fun.
To play and to run.
Choking game, again.
Funeral.
