My #24 For National Poetry Month


you hiss names in the dark

wait for them to come

name tags drifting to dust,

the mulch of your sleep.


your breath tells their tale

in twisted sibilance,

forked tongues

must act in accord with their nature


the dreams of innocents

your fodder, snaked canapes

served with a hint of lime

piquancy on death's breeze


and i

am still afraid of the dark
