Rafe advertised it as Cosmic Horror with miscegenation. I had a tenebrous mood but was restless.
With my drink I headed for that balcony we shared to toast her memory.
There I met Morella, referring to herself as that Poe character. She leaned against a column drinking in the night. I was surprised nobody had found her beauty.
Was it the Anise, my mood, or haze of night but as we talked the resemblance appeared to me as if in hologram.
I left to get more drinks but upon returning she had vanished. I searched the house to no avail; nobody seemed to have seen or heard of that beautiful enigma.
As I stood shaken Rafe said "dear chap, you're chasing ghosts again at my party, surely you remember how that ended last time!"
