Bad Luck In Wait

written by: A.M. Torres



Black fur, black hair
black cat, black snare
hear them scream out
bad luck they fear.
oh, black cat
it's Halloween.
bad luck today?
or just overall?
The moon shed its drops
red and forlorn.

Green or gold eyes
will black cat speak?
chase it away
for it wants to stay.
Black cat paused
in fear or in wait
black cat don't tease
today of all days.

Spreading bad luck
black as the sky
black cat in wait
more now show up.

Until its gone
a circle they form
on Halloween
chanting their cry.
