The scared ghost hates your mirror.
(FlyTrapMan & Poet Rummager)
Screaming is a high level orgasm.
Winged Ssssnakes were once thought beautiful.
Hiss of Ghost or Sssnake, PANIC!
Trapped ghosts escape from cracked mirrors.
While you weep, your reflection sneers.
Spectral mirrors are known to shatter.
You lie, Mirror, I’m no monster.
Monster devours; don’t dare, I swear.
Silly Mortal! Screaming won’t help you.
(Words and Feathers)
Your reflection; ready to devour — YOU!
I whispered into silence. It answered.
Stop screaming! Please! It’s me, Mother!
My death mask didn’t portray me.
She recognized the flavor of human.
Silent cries piercing through cold glass.
Drip – drip – what? – look up! – Aarghh!
Into battle, without armour or weapons.
“Ready?” “No.” Then I push him.
Her lips creep up… and burst!
