Yeah, I can smell it too ... by the time I'm half way through these there won't be crap for me to say as an introduction ... Oh well ... the poems are the thing, not my blithering!

                    A TRACE OF HAZE

                    the pits of hell
                    the darker zones
                    we see the trends
                    we know that we
                    have little chance
                    to free ourselves
                    to cast off chain
                    and be away
                    the world conspires
                    to drag us down
                    to pull beneath
                    the murkey deep
                    to cast us to
                    depression's void
                    with no hope to
                    arise again
                    this darkness swirls
                    not pent by light
                    it reaches out
                    to every space
                    leaving shadows
                    a trace of haze
                    touching all
                    with tendrils black
                    there are no paths
                    we haven't tried
                    all roads are mined
                    all doorways, traps
                    no safety here
                    no solace found
                    all vectors sharp
                    with waiting knives
                    the vise jaws close
                    with crushing force
                    the spike-lined walls
                    press in on us
                    the mountain casts
                    down massive stones
                    we are destroyed
                    without a trace
