Slender Man

entry picture

In the season of rain and deepening night

Drowning shadows of summer

When roads veer to stranger destinations

Beware the hitcher

Round the bend


Standing crucified in our dying day

Rays ailing through his slender form

Thumb flicking like a dying worm

He patiently awaits us

Round the bend


Old time hat shades his hungry eyes

Bat-chewed coat of old October brown

Eyeing all who come and all who go

Better let him wait

Round the bend.

He who preys
transfixed unsuspecting youth
in shadows waits
for his next.
