Sanctified: Chapter 12- Skin, Bone, Entrails

Fosco could not fully wrap his hand
Around the giant fang, trying not
To gross himself out as the bloody
Tooth pulsed in his grasp, shooting a buzz
Of searing energy through his bones.
The spiny beast shot into the air
And Fosco plunged the fang into it’s
Belly as he slid underneath the
Monster. It shrieked as Fosco dragged the
Tooth down it’s stomach, entrails and green
Goo splattered to the floor and onto
Fosco’s face. He gagged as the beast
Dropped dead; Fosco’s skin slithered as he tried
To shake off the beasts insides from his
Body. “That’s two of those things you’ve killed,”
A red haired woman choked out, “you must
Be blessed by an Angel.” Fosco scoffed,
“I’m just trying not to get eaten.”
A young man with baggy jeans jumped up
And said, “Well guide us to the promise
Land since you know how to face these fiends.”
Fosco took a deep breath and said, “I
Have some place to be tomorrow and
These ‘fiends’ ain’t gon’ stop me.” The other
Survivors glanced at each other and
Silently agreed to follow him.

Sanctified: Chapter 10- Toothy

The beast roared as the suitcase banged him.
Fosco slammed his luggage on top of
The spiky monsters head, the only
     Dent he made was in the luggage. The
     Monster’s thick skull was unbreakable.
     It roared and used is long arms to toss
          Fosco against a wall, its gaze shot
          To the teen girl shivering five feet
          Away. Fosco struggled to find his
     Breath, trying to remind his lungs
     How to breathe. The teen girl pulled out the
     Large fang as the monster sprinted at
Her. The man with the slicked back hair jumped
Between her and the beast, tackling
The teen to the floor before the beast
     Could maul her. The monster’s spikes shot up
     As it missed it’s prey, catching nothing
     But air. The others screamed as the beast
          Switched is attention to the seven
          Terrified witnesses, shaking in
          Horror. It possibly smelled their fear,
     Fosco thought as he noticed the thick
     Bloody fang at his feet. He snatched it
     Up and took a chance. “Yo shit-brain,” he
Hollered. The monster shrieked and charged him.
Fosco squeezed the fang, risking it all

Sanctified: Chapter 4- Watch It Crack

Sedequa’s spine seared as the screeches
Shook the museum, the man with the
Dark eyes swiftly looked around—cracks—crumble.
The giant statue in front of the
Two strangers quivered as cracks spread all
    Throughout the winged beast’s body. It’s large
    Eyes lit up red and the beast came to
    Life. It roared as it shook off the stone
    Chips that once engulfed its body. They
    Were real. Panic quickly swept across
The museum, screams of deathly sights
Flooding the building. Sedequa
Watched, her legs frozen, as a large cat
Statue went from gray to a vibrant
Green covered in pink spikes and pounced on
    A young woman running to the door.
    It devoured her. “Get down,” the man
    Shouted, wrapping his arms around her
    Waist and rolling to the floor as the
    Winged monster flew over, fangs ready
        To rip into human flesh. They were
        Alive and hungry, tearing through the
        Museum and breaking through windows
        And walls. They were craving flesh, yearning
        To be free. Free to hunt, free to kill,
Just as Sedequa pined for freedom.

Sanctified: Chapter 3- Don’t Bother

Sedequa could not wait to see the
“Monsters of the Congo” as the news
Was dubbing them. White people of old
Left statues of naked men and tits
That receive respect and praise but when
    Africans build creative and awe
    Inducing masterpieces, they’re seen
    As monstrous and frightening, she thought,
    But as Sedequa explored the more
    Than eight dozen stone sculptures with wings
And meticulously designed scales
And claws and fangs she couldn’t help but feel
Slightly intimidated by the
Art of ancient peoples, she was struck
With a strange feeling of abandon.
    “They’re quite something, arent’t they,” a man asked,
    His dark eyes and brown skin glistening
    In the light from the windows of the
    Museum. “Breathtaking,” Sedequa said.
    “I couldn’t miss the grand opening,”
        He continued, “Same with you?” She smiled
        And said, “They remind me of someone
        I used to know.” The man grinned and said,
        “They must be a magical person.”
        Sedequa would have smiled again,
If the screeching had not filled her ears.

Sanctified: Chapter 2- Switch Sider

Fosco folded the letter, put
It in his left pocket, and carried
On with stuffing his suitcase, resolve
Spread across his face. His partner walked
Into the bedroom, his arms crossed in
Defiance. “You’re just leaving,” Nick cried,
“Because some sister I never heard
Of writes to you about some kid show.”
Fosco sighed and said, “I told you I
Had a traumatic past.” Nick glared and
Said, “Must’ve been horrendous seeing that
We’ve spent countless nights talking about
Our favorite foods and crazy nights in
College, Nene Leakes’ newest hairdo,
And not once did you mention you have
A sister.” Fosco shoved a t-shirt
Into his suitcase and said, “I didn’t
Tell you I went to prison either.”
Nick’s jaw dropped, his eyes swelling with fear.
“Who are you?” Nick cried and grabbed Fosco’s
Arm. “I’m sorry,” Fosco whispered, “I
Didn’t mean to drag you into my mess.”
“I love you,” Nick cried, “I’ll always be
In your mess.” He grabbed Fosco and kissed
Him deeply. Fosco pulled away, zipped
His suitcase and said, “I have to go.”

Sanctified: Chapter 1- The Letter

                                        January 3, 2019
Fossy, it’s been a long time. I bet
You’re surprised to be hearing from me
After all these years. I miss you.
I was watching the news yesterday
It was about those creature statues
    They found in the Congo Rainforest
    And that show popped into my head, the
    One about the gargoyles, it made
    Me think of you, when we were kids.
    A lot has happened in the last six years.
I’ve finally finished school and
I stuck to a major, you know I was
Never good at commitment. I just
Started a new job at a middle
School, working with at risk youth; trying
    To make a difference. I also got
    Back into church, yeah, I’m going to
    Church again. It’s been… a real blessing.
    I’m heading back home on the 9th. I
    Know I didn’t leave on good terms,
        I know what I did was far beyond
        Betrayal, and I have no excuse
        But I want to see my big brother.
        “When I am afraid, I will put my
        Trust in you.” -Psalm 56:3 Love
Always, Your little sister, Sedi
