The cemetery spread along the area known as Devils Abode.   The ground is full of hatred.  A spirit can not rest there.   And seldom do.   It’s historic maker a trap.   Spider web from hell is all that lies in the Devils Abode.

The painted boards from trees dead a century,  haunt you with names.   Colorful names of choosing, not given names.  Their disembodied souls wait an eternity for a opening.  They fight over attaching themselves to the selfie taker.  Like they stole from the living, so it is in the dead.

The legend of the Abode told by an old worn out barn plank.

“Here lies Lester Moore, four slugs from a 44, No Les No More.”    

Inscription from Tombstone, AZ lovely town cemetery.
