Her Spines as She Sways

sedum.jpg

Her

spines

as she sways

to her own rhythm

hold a deadly, beautiful poison

for all who may incautiously approach;

mesmerized, her victims enter

to taste of her wares,

not sensing

death’s

grip.

    Spooky-good. I have to tell you that as I was writing tonight, I used “mesmerizing”, and was looking for a spot for “sway”, but didn’t find it–we’re too in sync!

    Evil comes in all shapes & sizes – the most dangerous of them come in a superficial form of beauty. One must always beware of such hidden evils.
