A Chapter by Dave Brown



Coming out when moon’s burn black

Slithering along the worn animal track

Gross, cavernous mouths open wide

Consuming the unwary they’ve spied

A chewing, jaw crunching process

Offering no sympathy for any duress

Hired by either one of an unhappy pair

Black of night conceals the affair

Consumption being a matter of course

Meant to save the crushing cost of divorce

spooky night murder of an unhappy spouse. I love your imagery in this one. Great words like "A jaw-crunching process"..."Gross cavernous mouths" and a hired killer to boot, though which one got the axe????
Best, Betty
