below the dam a textile mill used to thrive....

p e e k i n g
its head above the trees
it still wants to be noticed
far below the dam 
that now looms over it

back in its day
 there was no dam
the factory stood proud
and offered livelihood to those who worked in it

today its a mere shell
that offers nature
 a place to creep 
its fingers
into nooks and crannies

but even so
its original character
still shines through
