Nighty Night

By Charlie Robert

Nighty Night

She lies there.
Choking her pillow.
Breathing.
Scuba Tube.
If I should die before I wake.
She lies there.
The windows are black.
No one sees out.
But something sees in.
Her Beasts.
Her Kin.
Don't eat me please eat me.
A shatter of glass.
Blood in the throat.
She lies there.
Eyes like the dolls
she hides in the attic.
