Hide-n-Seek cont’d


when you finally hear


when they rouse you from dreams

at midnight



like some kind of alley ghost

or simply an old person

from the home across the way

a neighbor

feeling forgotten

and abandoned

you will sit up in bed

strain your ears to hear them



your comfy blankets

will no longer warm you

your pillow no longer

support your dreaming head


vibrates with murmuring

and voices in the night

call continually
