Hollow talk

Today I’m gonna turn a tail

about monsters from the bed

just when you get warm and comfy

they peek up their bulbous head,

watching you late into the evening

as you mumble toss and turn

wondering how to cook you

soft boiled or slightly burned,

a topic of masterful lore

but one I have known too well

dreamy places that turn your mind

and make your skin a lighter pale,

even now upon awakening

they move and gently sew

within the shades of the closet

or noses against the window.
