Hair of the Dog Members Only

Blinking through foggy vision you try to regain focus. You realize you've been staring at the pub sign for... who knows how long. Wow, that concoction George brewed up last week has had some lasting effects. "Shake it off, shake it off" - you tell yourself and push through the heavy wood doors to the cool dark interior. Halfway to the bar you realize the absence of Otto...and well, George isn't behind the bar either. What the..?? Looking around you discover the main room is completely empty of patrons, and Mabel. Even the daily dosers are absent.

You take a moment to collect your thoughts...recount your steps to verify you hadn't teleported through a locked door. After wandering around, you find yourself in the back room. A rustle of heavy fabric draws your attention to a small alcove where you see something that shocks and perplexes you.

Prompt: Write to this picture...any topic that fits it and in a dark/surreal nature.

Catch: Write it in 10 minutes (prep and editing can take longer)
