A November Haunting



Has come and gone

Leaving us with its

Vicious little demons


The howling wind

Screaming down the chimney

Like a banshee


Brittle twigs

Whipping along the windows

tiny scratching claws

of desperation


A wolf howl

Through the eaves


The cloying damp touch

Of dead leaves


Ice cold drizzle

Down the neck

Of an overcoat


A ghost of late October


Spine chilling

A scurryingly good poem, very scratchy to the senses, and a great followup to the more predictable Halloween climax .
