There Was a Tall and Slender Man

 

There was a tall and slender man.

Long slender fingers.

Cutting nails and needle like teeth,

blackened from old blood.

 

He followed me home through the woods.

Scraping bark from oaks. Purring like a wild cat.

He couldn’t keep up and so I slowed.

He laughed.

He had finally caught me.

 

I turned and laughed myself..

I am a tall and slender boy.

Fresh cutting nails.

White biting teeth.

Clawed feet.

 

The tall and slender man made three meals.

Long, slender bones litter my cave..
