grind-househe’s deadly trivial in the morning

thinks himself an auteur of horror

a newly minted incarnation of Argento

i have no desire to tell him that Terror

travels closely and isn’t planning to

he could have made inquiries of the

proper keepers of old and secret rites

but now he’s made himself a nuisance

and when the carnage is done, I’m the one hiding

bodies and bringing mercy for the pain
