mister papious loved his delicate drink in the mid afternoon. he knew he was awake enough to experience all its gifts; to void responsibilities so that he might travel with it to the moon
GIGGLES
Giggles was a vengeful clown For he plotted all the days Means to make the kiddies scream In cruel and crafty ways
Balloons he filled with fatal gas He juggled razor blades Whilst squirting acid oust boutonnière This he did in spades
He had a raven black as coal Her name was Elderfare She cackled songs of loneliness, Destitution & despair
Plucking Ada’s eyeball out Little Basil’s tongue she chewed O’ how the audience hated her As well, she loathed the brood
Giggles was a horrid clown With bulbous nose pitch-black Hair, greasy snakes n’ spider webs T’fetch a heart attack
His skin was sweaty octopus His teeth n’ gums were rank His fingernails were bloody marked On top of that he stank
From the bawls of rancid quagmires To the bats in belfry fly Giggles oozed egregiousness T’make the demons sigh
So be weary twisted circus O’ so luring come sundown Lock away your kinder dear For Giggle’s back in town

cemetery liaison

t’encounter thee after death
o’ gracious angels
how they snicker so
hiding in the shadows
survey as we turn
we spirits floating eternally
ah t’see you there
ghost apparent
t’grasp a sacred instant
acknowledge a magnificence
hush the howling minds
heed dying hearts still beat
rhythms t’dance on sacred headstones
without pause we do
swirl ‘round each other
hair transparent
touch finger t’finger
frosty lips upon our brow
smell perfumed heaven
love still
as god choose
better after dearth

in E†ernity,
The Kreep

each key had its own special variety of books it unlocked. the large key opened a volume of nautical maps and a very fine copy of Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven.  the small key, however, unlocked a series of encyclopedias and other large, cumbrous volumes of forgotten lore
