Poem-A-Day #59 : Dungeon Crawl

Dungeon Crawl

The table laces itself in the bodies of ants - the smell of peppermint

It's because of the food - the cracks in the wood - the cheapness of the apartment

He wants to watch a movie - the embarrassment of him over - of even thinking about opening this sealed room

          Roll a D20 for an armor check - you need above a 15

Outside the cottonwoods begin their fluffing - and thoughts could possibly reconnect to the idea of sex -

Though the mind is not really there - and frankly - that's fine

Hearts are caverns - so deep - so so so

          What if everyone dies this time? - if the surface tilts just enough - everything will slide into the abyss

You just want to be able - but - there is not much to build upon

He asks again

          The map is 2D is a stick figure is not accurate to scale - the figures are pawns

Not cavern enough - insert some metaphor about spelunking here -
- Insert some terrible pun about insertion here -

          The roll is terrible - you chop off your own hand are bleeding all over the floor the goblins in become ravenous at the smell of blood -

           they swarm - they swarm
