Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Under ghostly moon--
Bloody skeletons hang
Opening coffins

witches brew maggots in cauldrons
at the end of hooded dance

Shrieks from bleak alleys
Ruffle cobweb  hairs
Medusa hunts for flesh

a shortening  of pulses
mingles with children’s sweats

Pumpkin lanterns
expand knifed fangs
Loot bags ripping

from cracked windows of  trickery
Halloween’s beat mounting,  run!

*alternating 3- and 2-lines, traditional rengay

For Rusell Sivey's The Ultimate Halloween Contest
