Kiss

Recommended Posts

I'm not a talker, kept in solitude,
brought up by gran who liked her quiet.
Words worm to an early grave, she'd mutter.

I found the demons nested near the yews
in the churchyard. Heard them nibbling
the stumps of her corpse. I took them home.

They never leave, hungry for chat, snuffling
close-by, sniffing my sweat. Their voices
as moist as gran's goodnight kiss.

Nothing to be unsure about here. Rich in imagery, this one paints a picture worth a thousand words.
