Backside of the Night

haunted hours

when my ghosts

emerge from

the ether


in slow rotation

through my memory


only they can hear

skeletal orchestra


backside of the night

when my demons

come out to play

leapfrog through

my dreams

like rowdy children

with fangs

with talons

Red Rover

Red Rover

shall we play

hide and seek?
