The Last Horror Poem

Poem By Nick Hilton

Dark rooms,
Lit only with the dripping wax,
From used candles,
Long ago illuminating,
Lovers in there company,
Meals solitary and crude,
Their stains still splashed upon the floor,
Not pleasant stairs,
But ones that saw the lovers, married fight,
And bones from meals chucked upon,
Dead floorboards,
That saw the lovers slip powder into cocoa,
And single human souls drifting away,
Hard bedstead,
That saw the lovers pass away in sleep,
And a solo dyeing soul depart.

Cat Among The Chickens

Through ocean of feathers,
The murder would be soundless,

Chickens In Poetry

Have you looked beneath the surface,
Of the greatest poems and verse,
And seen that almost always,
There seems to be an anti animal curse,


Can we rent a boat and go,

Can you even row,

Ode To A Chicken Nugget

O my feathery friend,
Some wicked mans hands,
Have grasped your throat,
That Jack the Ripper,


Knowing that the abyss ahead,
May consume me,
Knowing that the trial ahead,
May destoy me,

The Palm Of My Hand

The lines cross like motorways,
And the rain leaves splashes on the roads,
There are no cars,
Just the pen,
