STRANGE SPANNERS being an accounting of strangeness of the warp and woof of my mind
For those of you new here, think of this as 1/2 "Night Gallery"

The Shade of the Handmaid
They say she was more beautiful than the queen she served
and was most vain about her hair so that she let it grow
with beautiful wildness
One day she stole the queen's comb because there was a tangle in her locks
the queen finally given the excuse
had her vane hand maid beheaded
Now that head floats through the halls
her long hair streaming behind like a comet's tail
