I – Séance


The circle grows bright

Hands intertwined; we call out

Reaching through the veil



II – Spiderwebs


Silk stronger than steel

Morning dew drops glitter like glass

A prideful builder



III – Ghosts


Unfinished business

Euchre game ninety-nine of one hundred

Someone play a hand



IV – Werewolf


Run, child of the moon

Feel the spirit of the wolf

Embrace the cursed form



V – I Wonder Why Skeletons Only Appear Once a Year


It’s bone swapping time

Rise but once a year to trade

Find the missing parts



VI – Secrets of the Suburbs


Whispers from next door

Creaking chains on the swing set

Idyll masks secrets



VII – Nosferatu


Unholy father

The undead lineage grows

Blood of darkness praised



VIII – Goosebumps


Feel the chill of dread

Shivers ripple down your skin

What is in the dark?



IX – Liminal


A rumble unseen

Ambiance in the station

Waiting and waiting



X – Reunions with Those Who Have Passed


Leave an offering

Say a prayer of connection

The dead are not gone



XI – Graveyard


Lay your head to rest

Blanketed in the warm earth

Together we sleep



XII – Arts and Witchcrafts


Sprinkle the glitter

Then consult the ancient tomes

A permeant spell



XIII – Spooky Boardwalk


Waves crash on the rails

Fog creeps in between the shops

Don’t follow the lights
