Historical Base for Gargoyles – Northstar Gallery


Hens grow teeth
in graveyards,
picking black daffodils
in the shades
of broken stones.
Shadows smile
and hair grows
thick on toads,
frogs laugh,
old blood dripping
from their lips.
Spiders waltz
hanging shrouds on
the dried skeletons
of grinning worms.

There is
even the Ghost
of a Gargoyle
his night colored mare.
