Guest Poet - Lynn White

Dark Fiction Factory welcomes back guest poet, Lynn White. Enjoy her following poems...


Even Death needs to take a break sometime.

Needs to sit on the beach in the sun

with his scythe hidden,

so as not to frighten the swimmers.


everything about Death has to be hidden.

There can be no exposure

beyond a few inches of face and hands,

hardly more than a woman in a burka.


everything has to be hidden,

so as not to frighten the swimmers


for when the holiday is over.

Trick Or Treat

They’re spilling like jewels

from the child proof jar,


sugar coated,

‘Eat Me’


Or are they tricks?

Try them

and you’ll find out

soon enough,

just suck them,

and you’ll see.
