Vultures descend

upon my withered body

in some strange pecking order

of who gets my liver

and who gets my spleen.


My eyes are

greatly desired horse divers

with a juicy brain

for an entrée. 


These nightmarish visions

ravage my dreams

and I swear 

I’ll never order

pepperoni pizza

at midnight again.

thanks, but ultimately still

thanks, but ultimately still not as frightening as my childhood Chitty Chitty Bang Bang nightmare.
