Evil Thing

by Mike Berger


Grotesque, ugly
beyond belies
Necrotic flash;
hanging.

Massive hulk;
yellow eyes;
curved claws;
guttural growl.

Slowly advancing;
reeking;
frozen;
feet turned lead.

Eye to eye;
tears spill;
body trembles;
mucous flows.

Dull yellow teeth.
Breath stinks;
curls toes;
growling, "Where
are the restrooms?”
