When Darkness Came to Supper

W
Darkness
Dread guest of mine
Sprawled at ease
Table spread in black lace
Drinking rum of black molasses
Eyes deadly nightshade white
Pale moons
In darkest night
Queer incubus’s delight
A fearful soul on which to feed
Seducing and inviting
Let’s play the devil’s dice
What have you to lose?
Stalling seductions entrancement
I asked
What have I to gain?
Darkness leant across black lace
And rummy breath rustled
It’s in the darkness
We learn to trust

We played the devils dice
