The Ghosts of Church Hill Tunnel

Death: They’re stuck in the muck inside Church Hill Tunnel.
There was a loud rumble.
The walls caved in and then
They were buried alive.

Frank: I don’t know how many of us there are
stuck down here, no one ever took our names.

Becca: It rained.
They built the tunnel too close to the river.
All night and day we lay here and shiver
in the cold, dark damp of Chimborozo.

Kristen: Don’t come too close,
bad things happen here.
Fear is just the start of it.
We are part of it,
the dark that lies inside your eyes.
We’re stuck there.

We like it when you’re scared.
Beware, especially in October.
If I were you, I wouldn’t come over.

Becca: What is it about the grave that makes people afraid?
You would be amazed at how quiet it is.

Kristen: You would be surprised
at how weird it is to no longer have eyes.
