Eddie G

Eddie G

A lisp

a whispered hiss

With a gristle hustle

and a deathly shuffle

you wind your way

back home

There’s a twist

and a freakish glow

in a freak show

the decaying beat

of a drum

hiss

a whispered kiss

of a driveling fool

your hunting days

are done

this

flayed lantern skins

bones used as tools

a soup bowl

not a soup bowl but

a human skull

  1. A real life character perhaps “Poe” could’ve written into existence. The imagery from your piece compartmentalized the darkness of a full length documentary I’ve seen on him. I feel as though I’ve seen it again. How evil can a human being be? An important question to ask.
