unusual animals lived
in the underground
nesting in the crevices and broken brick
disorder and mortar...
few would sip the fluid
which flowed down the underground river
they said it made them stronger
daylight only visible
through holes and open tunnel cores
long nocturnal creatures
tails like legs... like bodies...
like tails... like legs... like bodies
