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.
