The Bleak Heart of February
The Darkest heart of winter's chill
chokes out the hollow monstrous day,
its tendrils slithering to fill.

Rapacious, snaking, gasping gill,
in waters deep where wicked prey,
the Darkest heart of winter's chill.

Its teeth plunge, victim's cries so shrill
with lurching, wheezing, rending play,
its tendrils slithering to fill.

Her movement stops, it has its swill
the nasty piper sucks its pay,
the Darkest heart of winter's chill.

Vestigial quarry's heat distill,
blood's dulling red becoming gray,
its tendrils slithering to fill.

Her hope to wed, its gleeful kill,
this Valentine's, fourteenth long day,
the Darkest heart of winter's chill,
its tendrils slithering to fill.
