The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


Blues Song
by Amy Zoellers 

And the Gray Lady cries

from her grave

cries beyond it,



lover of night.


for spectacularity

for being stardust


to throw herself away.


beloved of the night,

cries her twinklings

of precious stones

precious moans,

Gray-clad groans.

She finds her medicine

in passersby –

long drinks of strange music

draughts of sunlit, dallying peace

and drains away at last

their precious
