Taking a Break
by Angela Yuriko Smith

the last thing she saw:
sunset on the open road
and no horizon.
she didn’t hear it—
iron hooves on hot asphalt
breath that hissed like steam…
she didn’t smell it—
desert sand, decay and death
the scent of the end…
she didn’t see it—
tongue lolling from snap trap jaws
craving bone to crack…
a bumper sticker
slapped on like a prophecy:
I brake for cryptids…
… and break she did.

About Nina D'Arcangela

Nina D’Arcangela is a quirky horror writer who likes to spin soul rending snippets of despair. She reads anything from splatter matter to dark matter. She's an UrbEx adventurer who suffers from unquenchable wanderlust. She loves to photograph abandoned places, bits of decay and old grave yards. Nina is a co-owner of Sirens Call Publications, a co-founder of the horror writer's group 'Pen of the Damned', and if that isn't enough, put a check mark in the box next to owner and resident nut-job of Dark Angel Photography.
