Shapeshifting 13, #4, “Soap Sally Chimera””>

“Soap Sally Chimera”

“Soap Sally is a witch bad children must avoid”,  says Dad. We listen for her twitch beneath our bed at night.  Goosebumps arise when window blinds flutter. Huddled, we are fearful to be found! 

Youth fled. 

Yet, Dad’s dire warning hovers, still…

in solemn shadows…

late at night…

memoirs of an ag’ed fright.


Painting by Henry Fuseli, 1741-1825.

Describe “Chimera” in exactly 52 words: (noun) horrible or unreal creature of the imagination; a vain or idle fancy.
