A Writeclub Prompt C/o Louis

Imagine a place

where underfoot

layer after layer

there was only soot

You’d dig for treasure

Diamonds and Gold

only to find

yourself growing old

for searching like crazy

in apparent red mist

the only thing found

that seemed to persist

was the movement of soot

to spoilheap from floor

as you keep on digging – expecting more

than a whole heap of nothing.
