With Apologies to Mr. Poe #Halloween2019 #nevermore

Black hair spills to the floor

Skin alabaster, lips azure

A raven pecks at the windowpane

I weep, tear my clothes

Doctors shake their heads

Oh, my Lenore

You promised us evermore

I lie beside her

Hot breath against cold cheek

Take her icy hand from her breast

Feel her fingers twitch, then grip mine


Happy Halloween, everyone! Hope you all get more treats than tricks. Here’s one treat for you. Yup, one gratuitous cat photo coming up!

Sleeping beauty.
