2022 November PAD Chapbook Challenge 14

Prompt: Take the phrase ‘[blank] Story’ (e.g. Tall Story) to create a title then write a poem for it.

Strange Story

a gathering of women

none were witches, they assured

trying to reach her loved one

an innocent was lured

a seance, she inquired, I don’t believe in them

but as she sat around the table

something started tugging on her hem

candles flickered on and off, medium weaved—a moaning sound

and then she heard familiar barks of her favorite bloodhound.
