watching an old horror movie

 

was it a wolf i heard

or the growling of my stomach

the monster shrieks

i’m out of popcorn

 

the mummy beckons

a creature is remade

i keep you alive

yes

i do

 

i protest

i’m awake

the sun is up

all nether things this side of oz

are done

time for living color

time for bed

 

until tomorrow

after sunset

when things that make no sense

come out to play

with popcorn

 

c l couch
