Stray Horizontals

she opens her eyes…

the blinds…they aren’t all closed…

i stand, adjusting the few stray horizontals

i lay back down…

…storms rolling in from the southwest, making the journey to sea, batter the house…

she opens her eyes…

whats that at the window…it keeps rapping

i smile

what like eminem?

no…

she bats my face sleepily

it’s just the wind, from the storm. 

okay. 

our eyes close again.

…at 2am, i wake, a small sound next to my bed, and i turn

(A VERY SHADOWSHAPE STANDS AT THE EDGE OF MY BED WITHOUT A FACE OR FEET AND MOANS)

i give it the finger and mumble;

fuck off, i’m sleeping with the cutest girl in the whole world

(we all sleep)
