The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


My Hair Recalls the Sea
by Amy Zoellers 

My hair recalls the sea, you say—

unaware of my command

over its deadliest beings,

those who secret in the bend of horizon

and cleave to the deepest caverns.

I release my reverberant, aberrant song-storm,

my shrilling squall

and they uncoil, stretch into waking.

One breath and they are force,

swarming nightmare and despair

over those who insult me—

and to all who have erred

into the neighborhood.
