Across the Hudson

Across the Hudson
The formidable fortress stands tall and grey against the trees
Inside, hidden and obscured
Inmates, gold, manufacturing, utilities, orphans, chocolate, vampires, untold secrets
Challenging attackers to find a way in
Smoke rises, blowing into the overcast
Settling over the valley
Watching, imposing
Upright in silent testimony
Insidious in its intent
Welcoming in its hunger
