Be Very Afraid

republished

Screeching fingers along the ground

Be very afraid

Rustling in the underbrush

Be very afraid

Don’t hear the screams of children

Coming from the underbrush

The bushes hide its vile face

Be very afraid

Walk some steps towards the hidden leaves

Be very afraid

But be careful not to make a sound

Be very afraid

You will see nothing

As darkness will surround you

Do not look me so puzzled

Be very afraid

Many have disappeared in these parts

Be very afraid

I am one of them

Be very afraid

For I have felt the embrace

Of green fingers alive

They are the fingers of the human plant

Be very afraid
