The Scream

There would be no subdued start,
no moan or groan, no tremulous rumbling
no hint of discontent deep in the vocal cords,
no gradual crescendo to the
peak of an intense


It began how it would end,
high pitched agony of breath
tearing through human flesh,
a tsunami roar of despair
against a blood red sky,
straight from an
Edvard Munch painting!
