Silk Road by Linda M. Crate

in the thick patch
of blackness
where no light can
penetrate
the void
a siren of the sky
swam
beguiling the wings of a 
faerie caught in the 
lisp of naiveté
making himself easy prey
for the hungry—
she sang to him of fortune,
of maidens, of love, and of
paradise
so sweet he could almost taste it
before he felt the presence
of her biting teeth;
it was too late then
the fly had been caught by the spider
and there was no way to escape
the silk road of 
death.








Linda M. Crate's poetry, short stories, articles, and reviews have appeared in numerous anthologies and magazines both online and in print. She has three published chapbooks the latest of which came out in August 2016: If Tomorrow Never Comes (Scars Publications). She is also the author of the fantasy novels branded as the Magic series.
