See wolves at the door
No menu of sweets tonight –
In the red
This poem was written for Carpe Diem Ghost Writer #30, in which Garry Gay suggested we write a Halloween themed haiku that entailed “thinking outside of the box or misdirection.” All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.
Also, since the haiku has a bluesy feel about it and features wolves, here’s a song from Howlin’ Wolf.
