Backside of the Night

Haunted hours

When my ghosts

Emerge from

The ether

Waltz

In slow rotation

Through my memory

Music

Only they can hear

Skeletal orchestra

 

Backside of the night

When my demons

Come out to play

Leap frog through

My dreams

Like rowdy children

With fangs

With talons

Red rover

Red rover

Shall we play

Hide and seek?
