Where the viaduct looms like a bird of doom and it shifts and cracks.

Where secrets lie in the border fires, in the humming wires. Hey man, you know you’re never coming back.

Past the square. Past the bridge. Past the mills. Past the stacks.

On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man in a dusty black coat with a red right hand.

He’ll wrap you in his arms, tell you that you’ve been a good boy.
Red Right Hand by DrFaustusAU
He’ll rekindle all the dreams it took you a lifetime to destroy.
Red Right Hand by DrFaustusAU
He’ll reach deep into the hole, heal your shrinking soul, but there won’t be a single thing that you can do.
Red Right Hand by DrFaustusAU
He’s a god. He’s a man. He’s a ghost. He’s a guru.
