Mammals who can fly

echolocating their friends

for an insect feast.

By Dima Pechurin on Unsplash

She approached the door,

not knowing about her fate…

would be sealed tonight.

By Matheus Cenali on Unsplash

Behind the doors, were

a large basket of apples,

a fruit knife, a lamp.

By Amit Lahav on Unsplash

The smell of candy —

cotton candy — wafted through,

the strangest combo.

By Manja Vitolic on Unsplash

Then, suddenly: “crack!”

a blur of orange fur ran

quickly by her side…

By Katie Harp on Unsplash

…with momentum to

leap head first into a pile

of crisp autumn leaves.

By Myke Simon on Unsplash

She followed, fell through,

like a movie, arms flailing,

her own rabbit hole.

By Olga Kozachenko on Unsplash

With a thud, she stopped,

landing softened by sweaters,

confused, dazed and lost.

Darkness envelopes

a pitch-black hug of silence,

lit only by stars.

Mystery candy

shaped like my least fave veggie

loaded with sugar.
