MINE FOREVER

Dressed in white skin and
Blood stained lips

The profound click of his heels
Circle me
He whispers
"A beautiful death will come upon thee."

My ghost
Slips into his soul

Bury Dubya BushBama

PRIDE GOETH BEFORE A FOOL

Arrogance of power
Corrupts absolutely.
Monsters behind masks
Not equal to the tasks.
Welfare for rich,
Welfare for poor,
Can we afford it
Any more?
Scary monsters chase away
Election Day....

TRICK OR TREAT?

Breezing breathing being
Ravenous revenge
Scarecrow terror timid taken
Torturous end
Vicious vacuity pumping pouring streams
Torrid tempestuous seas
Horrific trick sweet treat
Rising past psychic
Defeating deceit
Relishing Victorious Beat

LOVE VAMPYRE

Twilight disentombment
Midnight rendezvous
Bedchamber violation
Bloodlusting domination.
One sanguinary kiss
Enslaves to wife,
Your living death
Wins me eternal life.
Engorged with blood I rise
Within you pulses my prize....

THE HORROR!

Creepiness clings
perverts her smile
causes goose bumps
and glandular lumps
I will not shriek
when I hear her name
vilest ever there was
maggots cringe
whenever Debbie
comes to town

THE COLONOSCOPY

Proctology is fun!
IV needle in your arm,
I won't do you any harm....
Technological Incubus.
Inside, upside, transverse, down.
Rectum, colon,
Look around.
Biopsy polyps, cauterize,
Unconscious patient
Traumatize...bill!

THE BABY MONSTER

Doctor Destructo
Making noise
Playfully destroys
An army of toys.
Spilling some milk
He wipes out a town
Without a frown.
The baby monster
Leaves his diaper behind
Makes his getaway.

VAMPIRES BORED ON HALLOWEEN

Vampires bored on Halloween
Sick of sucking blood
Decided to be mean.
Stole kid’s candy
Took over houses
Threw people out.
Searching targets
Enjoying fun
Smirking scary faces
Haunting my dreams.

Eleanor Higgins

SERIAL KILLER

wrinkled thumbs
wrap an ivory throat
chest rising she flails
he loosens his grip
she heaves coughs
allowed another breath
she leaps
raises a gun
chooses death,
but now . . . or later?

DOOMED DARWIN DREADLOCK DRACULA LOVE

black ebony eyes
luging an entrail
female falcon clawing
skin scab dark
beauty bares beast
elvira has nothing
on this devil doll
i kinda love
the mad minx
married muse mrs.

ZOMBIE VAMPIRE WEREWOLF MONSTER GUVMINT

Blood-sucking parasitic Poli-Ticks
Kleptoplutocratic fascist statistmatic
BushBamaTon RepubliCratic
Pied Piper’s zombie charismatic
Tricky treatment.
Bend over, take it, pay the tax
They’ll take everything.
Big Brother’s coming.
Guvmint sucks
Your bucks.

DEPRESSION (NOT SO GREAT)

Quantitative easing
Abyss creating troubles
Voodoo economics
Witch’s brewing bubbles
Currencies collapsing
Financial Armageddon
Pry out gold
Buy bread or be dead
Who’s afraid of the big bad world
We made?

Wanda VanHoy Smith

REALITY HORROR SHOW

Alice Cooper's Theater of Death
Rocky Horror Show.
Neither as terrible
as the funeral
of Peter Lorre.
Vincent Price
reads reality eulogy
to hovering spirits.
Bela Lugosi creeps
Boris Karloff weeps.

Forever Halloween:

Doorbell chimes, hoodlums rhyme
“trick'r treat” voices raspy.

Eyes glow red, breath of death
flash of black sharp fangs connect.

Hot blood trickles down my neck
ageless souls chase immortal echoes.

AFTER ALL THE CANDY’S BEEN PASSED OUT

Nicole pulls
the sheets
over her head
and logs on to You Tube’s
ZOMBIE-THON!

“Who needs a man,”
she tells the cat.
“I’ve got the undead
to suck my brains out!”
