The fat lady, lips in shape of par excellence “O.” The viking hat makes her taller and more ominous. Faces flicker like torches in the dead of night.

operatic score
the deafening metal shriek
— pissant rodent ears

Doomed shadows quiver where the flesh will pay. The knees never knew such fright. Warmth of imperiled relief, embarrassed release.

the polished silver
patient to plunge or hashtag
— a trustworthy thrust

The blood that’s splayed — an afterthought. Its grip taut and unyielding.

cleansing of chalice
the sparkling wine in tribute
— sheathing of anger

    This calls for a challenge to the fat lady. Enjoyed it.

    Well-penned, indeed! You've created the perfect imagery of the opera. A great read.
