Denny E. Marshall ~ Cinq Haïku

Halloween party
many costume guests arrive
no one ever leaves


vampire diaries
patches of missing text hid
in wax and dry blood


with first name of Vic
maybe picking middle name
Tim, is a bad choice


business vampire
thinking outside of the box
though only at night


the vampire died
completely forgot about
daylight saving time


Denny E. Marshall has had art, poetry, and fiction published, some recently. These previously appeared in Stinkwaves, Hunger Magazine, and Z Composition.
