A Halloween Poem by Moonlight

I want my poems
to disturb you
creep up sideways
and unnerve you

sidle into your
peripheral vision
and slither in through
your too thin skin.

I want my poems
to observe you
coolly through
their slitted eyes —

and when you’ve had
enough of them
I’ll call them home
to me again.

  1. “sidle into your

    your too thin skin.”

    Reminds me a little of a scene from a recent web series picked up by ABC iview, where a thorn covered vine like plant captures, invades rapidly, creeping up through the body just beneath the skin, to kill and then consumes in time.

    Always cool when poems can awake other experiences, lived, watched, or listened to from time’s passing.
