THE EDEN CHRONICLES
No shadow under you,
no mirror image of your outline,
red eyes Morse code a warning
that seems an enticement,
an enticement that seems a warning.
Prickles on my neck
as you slither by
to the purr of the clarion.
Belly scraping rock bottom,
a piquant soup.
The sinister hand stirs, beckons,
a whisper hisses in passing...
"She's to blame,
herewith in mud forever"...
