HORROR MATSURI #1 / INSTINCTS (POETRY) #11
It’s Week 2 of Horror Matsuri, and time for more poetry!
John H. Dromey is a regular Insignia Stories contributor, with micro-fiction in both Insignia Drabbles volumes and a great Japanese story in our recent Castles & Kimono anthology. He also has another poem scheduled for Horror Matsuri on October 29th.
Enjoy this spooky yōkai piece!
John H. Dromey
Snowbound on Honshū
Home alone though not for long
Enter Snow Woman
As an outsider
A gaijin you may not know
She brings love or death
With an icy stare
Yuki-onna’s freezing hands
Tighten on your throat
When you gasp for air
She will inhale your last breath
Then be on her way
