      Raven
      Silhouette of my Dark Poet

      Sable silhouette
      Ebon shadow
      lithe and quick
      Flicker dancing
      Gothic Poet
      she lifts the pen
      lifts the instrument
      the shadow stiletto
      With cool
      white
      gentle hands

      Employing the subtle
      delicate
      Movements of a surgeon
      She cuts the page
      till it bleeds black
      She opens the wound
      releasing the acrid stench
      There is no sound
      save her rustling silks
      And the mutter
      sputtering of the candle

      When at last
      the lesion is squeezed dry
      She lays aside the pen
      the implement
      the laser edged darkness
      Touches her slender
      alabaster finger
      To the still wet ink
      Lifts it to her pale lips
      staining them



      Quixotic as ever

      my life? . . .
      throw in a few flying zombies
      and you'd have an episode of Dr. Who
