Horror. From the collection " Tempe Freight Trains. "

The Temptress


Seems you've been caught

Trembling with shame,

Scribbling on the glass

Of that old temptress

The moon again,

You've got a bad name

From playing that game,

There's no chance 

To explain,

When your pants

Are stolen

Down in lunacy lane,

As she winks

At the stars

She can no longer tame,

And a hurricane

Twists the remains

Of the freight trains,


In her deranged brain,

Screaming in pain, 

Screeching insane.
