salem (part ii)

after he departed

she was sure of only one thing:

the enormity of their mistake.

and the weight of it

pressed on her chest

as she began to make her way

to the river.

off in the distance

a once faint thrum

intensified

in the thick of the wood

like a growing chorus;

calling to her

from the canopy.

she paused

at once terrified

and curious.
