The Blair witch

September and December 2010

Ξ

Boil, boil, many a human spoil

The blair witch out with the gargoyle

Keep your offspring and shelter your soul

Or never again will you ever be whole

Ξ

Boil, boil, bring out of metal foil

The glistening thread of him in a coil

Stack the hearth and bring on some coal

Here comes wicked witch with a mole

  1. I can’t help but look at this poem from two perspectives. One is the poetic perspective, your imagery is really vivid here – and creative (as usual, in your case), especially “The glistening thread of him in a coil.” The second perspective comes from having known more than a few witches in my life … the half of which would like this poem because they are the farthest thing from what your imagery would suggest (they would read a sarcasm, directed toward popular generalizations, in your poem); the other half of which would probably delight in displaying all their moles 🙂
