Welcome back my friends. Last week there was a flurry of brilliance scattering through the veins of the internet and I’m *sniffs* so freakin’ proud of all you.

It was darker, more demented, and even funnier last week, so picking the poems for this week was a delicious challenge. Onwards to

I hope you all have a delightfully dark day, and I look forward to reading all of your poetry today on Twitter and Instagram using #HorrorHaikuesday!
