They travel in abhorred clarity
translucent against smeared past scenes
as they walk through white walls;
supposedly transcendent in emulation
of the remiss of society; archaic nightmares uncovered
by truncated whispers echoed out
from mouthless visages.
Even the trepid quail before these impermant forms
for although their shape may tremble and disassociate
their instillation of trepidation endures.
As placid fervency drives
the venerable mysteries.
