Horror Movie

We watch these
Bloody films
Since our world
Is much more
Frightening

Though that’s hardly
Reassurance
All their nightmares
Won’t come
True

Cause perhaps
It’s even worse
Than each mind
Could ever
Conjure

How all sin
Committed daily
Seems benign
If kept
Onscreen

While such gore
Still has us
Flinch
Knowing terror
Isn’t fiction

But a staple
Of existence
Hidden clearly
In plain
Sight.

– J. Pigno
