NaPoWriMo Day #24

The prompt over at NaPoWriMo today encouraged us to write a poem about an art piece.  I decided to write about some of my favorite art:  the vintage pulp horror/gothic romance book covers!

Dime-Store Cover-Art

Sometimes I wonder
what they were thinking,
all those women running
from the blurry silhouettes
of overtly-dark houses
that rise in the background
of leafy-green trees on moors,
or rocks atop mountains
meant never to be scoured
by the mortal hands of man.
All those houses with one
bright window like the
eye of night, invisible
mouths of doors ready
to swallow screams,
those dark and silent
vintage pop-art tombs.
