for Dean - beware

A New Staff

by ArtGal

her white face
color of fresh snow
with red hair
brighter than a fresh rose
peeks into rooms
before we sleep
no rest once again

piercing eyes
and pointed teeth
follow our moves
we stay in rooms
locking doors
but her key fits
when needed
we're prey
for staff meals

she eats
in a broom closet
gnawing can be heard
she mops
but streaks of red
linger

curious
in the midst of night
I search her small
eating space
stench of rotting flesh
leads to a hidden wall
pushing it open
I see human limbs
hanging like sausage
drying out

teeth marks
show on all
her meals always the same
salt and pepper nearby
with a jug of cranberry juice
or something else

walking the hallway
to the lounge
she stops to talk
I answer yes
I know Dean well
she smiles
knowing where to find him

dear friend
I'll give you your present
early
an extra long blanket
will cover your face well

she likes
to pierce throats
to keep her teeth
sharp
keep those little kiddies safe
you took away
still under their blankets

nighty-night
sleep tight
now
I can rest!
