See Wolves


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.
