SNAKED

shattered window glass and swinging chains

thunder

ccc ra ck!

sssss—

snake slithers through vines—abandon—sssss

winding path to crocked

house and leafless trees

blood on porch—dribbles and drops

the wayward night with rumbling crack!

door creaks drifts on dangling hinges—rrrrrrrr

sssss

tumbles

crrrrrr—ash!

chandelier swings in ruddy night—lit

whispering candles

shhhhhh—shhhhhh

they cry out

wailing—the blood-born moon

And in the foyer, listless—wrist vein

drip—drip—drip

ssssssss…

droplets weave through vines

candles flicker

shhhhhh—shhhhhh

out
