Curse of the Bark

Curse of the Bark

A Poem by MomzillaNC
"

A fity word horror story

"
He startled her with a roguish pinch
Ignored her feral smile and angry squint
In a fine-china cup she served him tea 
Made from the bark of the wolf-willow tree
Too late he learned in the moon high dark
The gypsy curse of the bark in the bark

My slow, old brain had to ponder those last words for a bit before the clever play on words became apparent. Slick writing, my friend--just right for the coming of scary things. (The fun kind, not that horrible orange thing)

LOL. The “power of womanhood” has always been decried “Witch!”
Ooooooooooooo lovely one. I was lilting along with the rhythm and half way through realised what was happening. Revenge , they say, is a dish best served cold. In this case it happened to be hot.
