P1040002 (1280x960)

 

The bed is for sale now.

The wallpaper’s gone.

The window is bigger.

The lights are all on.

 

The monster is missing,

But that’s no big deal.

He’s down at the big house,

 

Copping a feel.

 

The nightmares are leaving.

And so is the smell.

This room of my childhood.

No longer my cell.

 

The old moving finger,

That many pains writ,

Now pens a fresh panel:

 

Enough of this shit!

 


To keep me in coffee, you may wish to

Whatever the sum, I’ll toast your health.
