stares at the carcasses

on the power lines

a lightning bolt

sizzles and fizzles 

the ravens

 

 

 

thinking 

he's in a coma

she urges

the dead husband 

to wake up

 

 

 

tomb 

raiders

a cold heart

on the grass

a graveyard of silence

 

 

 

the night

of hungry ghosts

spirits of the dead

haunt the streets

black rain & lightning

 

 

 

 

tarry night

tapping the window

a red ghoul

asks to play

with him

 

 

 

full moon

of seventh lunar month 

blood feast

the decorated table

with imaginary diners

 

 

 

witchcrafts 

and spells 

in the calabash

macbeth's coven

neath the dark moon
