Horror Movie Wake-Up Call

by John Kendall Hawkins


I wake up in a dream feeling fallen.,

running cross a black cat that meows my name;

Rosemary's baby, Woody's eyes, callin'

in a not-so-lucky country. A game

of Wicker Man island winks, codes and cues,

ending in sacrificial laughter, fire

and rain. Is it safe? Marathon Man blues.

Jacob's Ladder's jittery ghouls in choir.

Mom said if you objectify and rush,

you'll go blind. I'm a lama on the lam,

Frankies give chase, know too much such and such,

forest of eyes surrounds me. It's Bataan.

Self-see horror movie wake, wake-up call --

that's all, that's all, that's all, that's all, that's all...
