You Are Ageing Like Fine Wine

a story about you, a cask of fine wine, ageing behind a brick wall



You are ageing like
fine wine, casked
and bricked into
the catacomb wall
with a skeleton
and a grudge.

But one day those bricks
will fall and, blinking
in torchlight,
they will behold
your bitter oak,
your nook of bones,
your dark vintage,
and they will drink deep
and shiver.

PS: I just launched a new online shop called Nat 21 Workshop last week to sell The Shortest Story merch, as well as a lot of fun D&D T-shirts, dice towers, D&D pins, and more!

Also, if you're looking to buy any gifts for writers, I put together a gift guide on The Story Engine Deck blog, which might be handy!
