Poem: Slurping

The guts,



Along the wall,

Down the hall,

And into the mouth.

It sat there,

Tongue coiled,

Teeth stained,

And took up the hallway.

The parents long ago,

Something red and flowing,

The child,



Deadly unknowing.

A slow crawl,

A pink worm,



But cool to the touch,

It crawls along,

And then—

Rises up over,

And caresses,


The skin of a boy.

A sliding breath,

Escape his lips,

A slight motion,

As it wraps around his hips,

He doesn’t notice,

Doesn’t care—


He is there,

Dragged along,

By floor—

Only to wake up for a second,




Then silenced,

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
