Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Something that just came to my head after reading the contest prompt and starting to write
If I was afraid of the dark
you’d see me under the blanket
covering my ears from the barks
of dogs and shouts of people I’ve never met

Then realizing there’s no sound
it was just in my head
what really was in the background
was the hissing sound of a snake, undead

It slithered its way on my bed
saw a pathway open and went in
it saw me and I said
you’re not gonna win

Maybe it was my eyes
or maybe it was my aura,
it turned its head and I sighed
didn’t see the tail hitting my vertebra

I don’t know what happened next
but from the snake’s point of view
this undead animal opened a vortex
taking me with him to that swirling blue
