America's #1 Dying City
~“Take care when you handle Cliche’ lest you draw offense of Metaphor, as neither will honor what they seem in life nor what you would wish of them in death.” …said Down the Gravedigger
His words fall like pennies on a damp vault floor, amidst the scattered sounds of fat raindrops as they plant themselves along the tiny streets and little stone buildings of this city of the dead. Above, dung-brown clouds fly over the rooftops of the Quarters like the surface of a dirt road as seen from three inches away at thirty mph.
Yet he feels neither breeze nor disparate sigh from the rain falling now straight and steady down into the cemetery.
