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.
