Teaser Tuesday: Reaper, Coming Soon From Briana Robertson …

It’s Teaser Tuesday, and I wanted to shout out to Briana Robertson, a fellow Stitcher. Her Stitched Smile Publications work, Reaper, is coming soon. Here’s a little poem I wrote to commemorate its release, along with an original piece of art and a teaser for it as well …

And remember, Death comes for us all!

The Reaper

The Reaper comes to claim a soul;
A death to usher in
A scythe of doom to rake the coal;
A breath to render thin
The moment of arrival bleeds;
Enacts the final mark
And all must heed the plot that speeds
A flame into the dark
Horrific in the night’s attire;
Horrendous skeleton
Enrapturing the bleak desire;
The dead’s own telamon
The Reaper knows no bribe or taunt;
A silent killer’s drape
And when the grim one comes to haunt
No mortal can escape …
