gray eye (20170407)

pity the trio
of old women
with a single eye
and single tooth
among them

though they
know much that
is hidden
when the eye
rolled behind the sofa
and they could not
find the can opener
they resorted to blind
cannibalism

politely taking turns
chewing
each other
with that one tooth

      1. Hopefully you get more than a salty handful of nuts out of this. Should be good for a SlasherMonster post.
