A damp place smelling of mold and straw.

Mice moved about freely running over my arms, hands and face.

I could not move or even blink my eyes.

Voices below me whispered my name and laughed.

Where was I? Why could I not move or speak?

God help me. A barn loft? Smaller things tickle my tongue.

The bodies belonging to the voices are climbing up toward me.

Still laughing. I can see two men pushing onto the lofts oaken planks.

He’s dead alright. The smell. Should have planted him sooner.

More laughter as I’m lifted. Stiff and helpless.Dead.
