persian khushi


Moon Howling

Streets quiet
Smoking chimneys
Families prepare
For evening meals
She missed her lift
Alone, walking home
Someone following
Eerie giggles
Fear gripping
Footsteps echoing
Stopped to hear
Looking over shoulder
Only darkness behind
Full moon tonight
Imagination running wild
Stray cat meowing
Hastening steps
Must hurry
To warm safety of home
Passing dark alley
Scuffling figures
Wolf howling
Near forest edge
Tap on shoulder
Sharp intake of breath
Female screaming
Raw fear in throat
Fists clenched
All muscles stiffened
Screams were her own
Stranger standing beside her
Dark piercing eyes staring
Amused at fear on her face
Sharp features
Straight lines of his jaw
Evil in the air
Heart racing in throat
Then he smiled
Showing teeth
Run! Run!
Like statue
Limbs won't move
His long finger sensually tracing
Soft skin of neck
Dank smell of sewers
Bats in trees
Tramp peering over whisky
A scene seen before
Next victim
Still holding breath
Collapsed in arms
Looking up at moon
Fierce ravenous need
Mouth opened wide
To feast on soft neck
Sticky sweetness
Coursing through
Empty existence
Hunter's howls
Teeth dripping
With blood
Feasting complete
Body limp
Few coins thrown
Tramp to discard of corpse
Same scene played every night

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
