“The Cave” ©️C.P. Hickey 2019

“The Cave”

expanse of black inviting
not a way in, but out
a need to hide from the rabble insists
forever spelunking
necessary to avoid the plague of society
coping through omission
drab denizens make safe harbor
there, but only one way in
toward the ill
the cave is not an allegory
simply a delusion
