Readers of souls who’ve

Long since perished–

Eaters of the dead,

Graveyard fishers.


Food for thought with

Arguable nutrition–

Writers’ pulpy volumes

That feed ambition.


Circling plates

‘Round candlelight–

Where readers consume writers; and

Writers create moonlight.


Writers of souls who

Might have existed–

Fleshing from pages,

Meals to be fed.
