I'm no bump in the night.



Dirt’s on the sill.
Do those Christmas lights
strengthen your winter will?
The stuffing left’s all lumps
in your Nana’s quilt.
You better huddle up.

I’ve festered,
now you choke,
all through the night.
My spores entered when you spoke,
in your sleep mumbling incoherently.

Don’t you wish that I was just. . .
Don’t you wish that I was just. . .
Don’t you wish that I was just a bump in the night?

Refrigerator sweats.
Ceiling drips.
Loveseat’s growin’ fungi, funny smells
from beneath the bed, but above it all
you’re here with me. (Here with me)
I’m no bump in the night.

Some things need your fear,
It’s their daily bread,
else they disappear.
Like the boogie man who loves the dark
parts of our hearts,
the draughts of hate we impart.

That niggling list of slights
gave me my chance
to hide away from the light.
And I grew in your lungs,
noxious, but aloof.

Don’t you wish that I was just. . .
