“A Tale of Domestic Horror” by Angela


Cold Horror
by Angela

She peered, and stared
Gasped in horror
Standing transfixed
By the open door

Bright lights upon her
Illuminated object
            -- or creature
Once, contained
Behind heavy door

Safely, she'd thought
In Tupperware plastic,
A protective field
‘round putrefied remains

Locked up securely,
She'd thought
Sealing and hiding
Its foul, odour

No, oh, no,
She gasped again
As it shuddered
And wriggled away

A tremble, a shake
A gelatinous force,
Oozing and creeping
Across kitchen floor.
