death’s stench filled the air
it beckoned my attention
I turned
a bone man stood before me
his massive black cape
ragged and heavier than he
from his face dangled a mouse
another clung to his ear
with a curled nail
he motioned for me
the odor of decay grew stronger
I was under his cloak
dim visions of photos pinned inside
filled my eyes with horror
a collage of others
terror marked their faces
in the silence of fear
under darkness of cloth
a flash of light filled my space
the photo newly pinned was me
I reached for it
but my fingers couldn’t grasp
