The Gregorian Outcasts

The Watcher
9" x 12" acrylic on canvas panel

Animated shadows absorb the silence 
from across abandoned streets,
their eyes empty beneath fedora hats

Minions of the dark,
They gather to witness the suffering
of those living within man-made Hells 

Watchers
dining on impotent rage
made all the more succulent 
for its subtle flavor of hope.
