Hexed

 

Here’s a Halloween triolet in which I eschew the usual trappings…

 

HEXED

 

Temptress, witch, you live atop the valley;

I know of you not one thing but evil.

Helpless, hexed, I too am drawn to dally.

Temptress, witch, you live atop the valley;

My soiled heart you add to your tally.

Head clasped, I deny the grubbing weevil.

Temptress, witch, you live atop the valley;

I know of you not one thing but evil…

    Maureen, thank you so much; I’m glad you liked it. We had the usual Halloween fun with jack-o’-lanterns lit and treats for those little ghouls, ghosts, monsters and goblins who came knocking at our door. In ‘Hexed’, though, I preferred the psychological to the supernatural…

    Yours,

    Paul
