The Cave of the Cat

The Cave of the Cat – Oweynagat

The entrance is small and triangular but

the cave grows the farther you go inside it,

almost like a womb.

Blackberries surround the impenetrable darkness,

as if in warning of the trick the cave does to trespassers

as it takes them.

Never go there on the night the veil is thinnest,

for it will swallow you whole and never relent its

prey on Halloween night.

Only a hooded crow emerges from the depths

back to the mortal world, as it brought spirits of

the darkness to materialize.
