Canary in the Coal Mine

Canary in the Coal Mine


Within the confines of their pairing

she discovered an evil man.

One without conscience,

one without heart

one without soul.

One who cared not for the innocence

of little children nor cuddly animals,

nor for warm sentiments of affection and memorials.

One who cared not for majestic nature nor glowing sunshine,

silvery moonlight nor glittering starlight,

only the stygian gloom and dark, dishonorable things.


Too late,

she should have sent a canary into the mine

before stepping inside.


Linda Imbler
