" a bat, an owl, & a shadow"
Fluttering, expansion of exhausted wings, leathery flight, roaring ride the murky dusk, shapeshifting, nurse the nectar of the clavicle fruit, Dug out grave eyes fidgety with in narrow sockets, rotating sight through thickets of brush, nights patient stalk from an oak's branch dripping blood dark red, here within coffin pellets lies the nocturnal dead,
Shifty unlike West Texas desert sands, devouring all which grants access, fence line there, valid only by my fingers splintered sliding graze upon mended Cypress, & too could this be deemed a staff holding the ache of restless legs from a shoulders slouch, horrid break in things nothing but blank rotted space, darkend depths woods but it's a wise wide open valley, little does a moon newly renovated shed it's light matting mangled upon sly arches, pale shimmer the tips of blades to grass, October scythe at scuttling twilight suckling all light, as black tar through oceans of crystal or peppermint oil in an eye, sight confiscated stumbling seance, a witch's blessing hand, cursed stare down, I shifted again, time & purgatory, dark & darker, darkening what early hours seem an eternity with out foreshadowing forelorn, nothing perceived but sounds bartering bickers as if flameless lighters on an endless bowl, the owl regal hooos, hoo, whooo??? With fluttering of wings no more than paper tumbling through damp back alley streets, then silence. Death stalking death where the moon was a mirror, caught between two reflections, wanton fate when eternity in Oblivion waiting, with a slight twist of back & forth, a rusted swing damned to vacancy, adults grown up, leaving the phantom of their youth as lightning seering through each creak of fluctuations, life to death but a natural draw, magnetized spirits frequencies leave a hollow of bones, baked buzzard billigerent scavenger tomorrow's rotting feast, fangs into the flesh of fruit, charmed as I've ever been. #original #gang #of #darkness #wicked #empty #soul #write #writer #13 #31 #halloween #october #owl #bat #shadow #horror #spooky #creep #devil #witch #twilight #fruit #flesh #beauty #blackandwhite #red #purgatory #him #her
