The Hooded Figure

*
Danger glides in the
Light
'Twixt dark and light
And lurks in the
Dark
'Twixt light and dark.
And the cloak of
Danger
Is colorless and ragged.

**
And the face of
Danger
Is deceptively sweet
And caring.
And slyly,
It is a good face.

***
Danger has long hair.
But is it a woman?
Or is it a man?
Danger has strong hands
And slender,
Grasping
Fingers.

****
Danger hovers above
The tattered black clouds
And falls
Like a falcon,
Wings furled
Taut and curved,
And snaps them out and drops and snatches with
Talons
And comes like a
Lightning bolt
Made of darkness
Instead of light
And cold, cold
Terror
Instead of electric heat.
