Magpie Mine (5/11)

Lead-mining was a speculative business with big profits to be made sometimes and huge losses at others, so the mine changed hands frequently.

The Birth and the Death of...(AEIOU)

Warm angst affrays
The wretched Eden we
Kiss in; it
Knows how to rob
Us.

As
We err, we
Miss its birth:
Bloodroots born of
Dust.
