Specter

she wore a black shirt,
a black hat and black shoes.
she accused: they trampled her ceiling
and rattled her floors,
and with black words
shivered her and her little black dog.

they hijacked her black phone,
robbed her leather black wallet
then made her show bare
all her black skin.

then on the black seats
in her black car,
by the apparitions,
they fled her away
into the black Night.

dashed, left beaten on the fjord,
unsurmounted, rendered jagged by the peak
to wit, stripped of mine tattered garb.
though lost not of will and able
yet wonder when the caldron Chills

Splotch

ink
spilled
spoiled
splintered
splattered
searching for a page
where nothing may be Writ

Aftermath

this morn the dawn lingers stale,
festered of travails born of eve last
enveloped in yesterday’s promises
still-born of a serrated Night
