New Poetry by Zane Castillo: “Demon Appetite”

Demon Mask from the 1921 book "The No Plays of Japan"

Demon Mask from the 1921 book “The No Plays of Japan”

Horned beings

covered in flayed flesh

scamper towards him.

 

He watches in shock

unable to move

a recalcitrant limb.

 

Gurgling sounds

and squeaky giggles

come forth from

the demons’ mouths.

 

Drool falls to the floor

and runs towards him

as the demons’ anticipation

grows with their appetite.
