4.10.2010: Horror Poem

(For Missy)

I sit in the dark, the film ghosting
across my pale skin. I clench
my eyes shut, and shudder.
Such a mess on screen: guts,
gore, and screaming. Although
I love to be frightened, I don't
love the feeling of losing my lunch.
I want a psychological attack,
not an intestinal one. I want a
movie to terrify me, not make me sick.
