Old Mines: Abbadon and Gehenna

Two posts from the excellent writer “Nagrom” at Rum and Donuts. The first is
an essay on an acquaintance of ours who died exploring one of the old mines in the Magdalena mountains
(our mountain range probably has a hundred such– someone with the knowledge could doubtless cross the range underground). The second is a poem about his attraction to such hidden places. Read, as they say, the whole thing.
