Hide many a wonder in the disguise of darkness,
Veiled by shadow and a discreet demeanor, a shyness

The cover artwork from ODDS AND ENDS by Lori R. Lopez.
What terrors lurk in the blackest regions of a cellar, amidst dusty cobwebbed shelves, in the glass jars and metal cans of a hopelessly abnormal mind?
A black hole is etched in my soul
Space has no end, no beginning
It bounces to the knife-edge of Nevermore
And beyond, perhaps too far
The birds of night flap broodful wings
Against the pewter clouded mist
Though sleep might claim most
At this hour of witchcraft and ghoul
Their leather-like flails evoke a restless
There was something in the basement . . .
A girl cowered in her bed at night and listened
To a mournfully somber wail that echoed
Through the floor of her room, imprisoned.
What if you woke
And found yourself cursed —
The clock ticking backward
Your reflection unreversed?
If the canary were tweeting
And you drew only blank tiles
