In The Red Mountain - Poem by Christoph Praus

There is on top, the world,
A mountain tallest, red skied,
Black stoned fort, terrible cubed,
Wormholed deeply tunnels twist,
A yawning gap abyssal vast!

And in its bowelled grasp,
In ever darker damply maze,
In the endless pit,
It stirs wetly;

It shrieks! How it shrieks!
Another wet thump echoes,
Sliding along the nameless corridor,
Crawling, agonisingly into the light;

And the world cracks,
It's yolk red, like the skies,
And it shrieks,
Unto us all.

    Thank you for the kind words. I'd just read At The Mountains of Madness. Some of the imagery was fantastically twisted.
