The River Styx

Below indigenous herds of species’ Soft stampeded tramplings, Profound caves water rivers underground. Roots grow their nether forests Down to a shadow fathom depth of earth. Tendrils leaf out only tuber leaves of dirt. Flooded backs of charcoal catacombs Snake like water moccasins through Aquifers to rise disguised as springs and wells. Here there is a bargeman who For pennies holding eyelids down Will help you to forget Vaguely chambered Urges of the heart.
