C.D. Tolliver

Oleic Odium

The odor of death and decay fills
the proud towering edifice with mephitic vapor.
The tenants flee as if pursued by ghouls.
The grease-trap must be drained,
and the building straddles the alley.
--C.D. Tolliver

  1. Thanks for linking up with Trifecta this week. I'm sorry your post didn't get up earlier--it has been one of those days! I love the elevated language you use here to describe such a disgusting, pedestrian aspect of human life. Great take on the prompt. Hope you'll come back and join us again soon.
