Graveyard Shortcut

================================ Hiding in the shadows, there at the corner of my eye, I am slowly made aware there is someone else nearby... "Who is that?!" I bellow then, "Hiding in the shadows there?" "I've no use for boogeymen!", I yell into empty air. One more sheepish peek I dare, feeling harebrained to have thought, hiding in the shadows, there was some scare that there was not.... But my heart begins to race when that cursed glance I spare, suddenly reveals a FACE hiding in the shadows there! ================================

Thank you, Bev! I'm a big fan of the 'Quatern'. I love the way the repetition propels the piece and find that when I use it, the work seems to practically write itself and the end result is almost always ominous or tragic
