It's Me Again


Click.

 

Lights on. Eyelids scrunch and adjust. Dreams invaded. Night becomes day. An explosion. A house fire. A flash of lightning in a storm at sea. A change in plans. Setting new coordinates for the Sun.

 

Yes, room, its me again.

 

Yes, room, I realize what time it is.

 

No room, that number is not normal.

 

Hello, familiar creak in the floor.

 

Hello, familiar creak in my knees.

 

Hello, meter error.

 

Screw you, meter error.

 

Hello, Tooth Fairy. Weve got to stop meeting like this.

 

 

 

 

Hello, Magnus Robot Fighter. Hello, girl cowering in distress. Hello, plastic hockey players on the shelf. Hello, gold-plated baseball trophy guys. Hello, Captain America bobble head. Its not looking good tonight.

 

Thanks for your concern.

 

Yes, ghost, Im at it again. Sorry to disturb.

 

Yes, spider under the bed, its me again.

 

Yes, monsters in the closet, foiled again.

 

Hello, pink cheeks. Hello, licked lips. Hello incoherent mumbles. Hello, bare leg sticking out from the covers. Allow me to tuck you back in. Hello, sweaty hand hiding under the pillow. Hello, arm wrestle. Good match. Same time, same place tomorrow?

 

Hello, high.

 

Screw you, high.

 

Hello, curses under my breath.

 

Hello, elastic waistband.

 

Hello, tubing.

 

Hello, buttons.

 

Click.

 

Yes, room, its me again.

 

Yes, room, I realize what time it is.

 

No room, that number is not normal.

 

Hello, familiar creak in the floor.

 

Hello, familiar creak in my knees
