and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
Whirring winds rattle windowpanes
with sounds of moans and clanking chains.
When the whole world seems to shudder
my heart jumps into a flutter.
And a ghostly aberration
shakes my beliefs to their foundation.
Caught in my peripheral sight
magnified by the lack of light.
Shifting shadows shriek from the dark
hearing the neighborhood dogs bark.
And I gaze at the face of death
grab my chest, and struggle for breath.
