002: Dying Of The Light

002: Dying Of The Light

Must be an electric gate.  To keep the herd (flock?  shamble?) of zombies in, no doubt.

In this installment, Shadow is out walking and finds herself drawn to this particular place yet again.    However, she did not expect to have company.

Title Reference: “Do not go gentle into that good night.  Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” – A poem by Dylan Thomas.  The night in question is Death.  However, one wonders whether the poem would have the same meaning for Shadow.
