Shadows creep in


Give her confidence

Despite her nerves


She strides forward

Eyes fixed on the sandy coloured

Monster that has overlooked

The town since before she was born


The jagged edges

Of the remaining windows

Glint like teeth when the

Yellow gleam of the search lights hit


She swings one leg over

The stained ledge

Cringing as she brushes against

The ingrained grime marring the greyish white paint
