Under the bed

 

sharks
a dragon
stuff
mainly bags and traveling stuff
clothes and dust
stuff,
storage
the missing light and the earth
it's an unknown mystery that continuously puzzles me
dust
dust
my cat
stuff
storage
a tree
a futon,
dust bunnies,
and odd and end lego pieces
a box with books and memories
secrets and fluff, obviously, but also snarls, grimaces and complaints best left in the dark unsaid
pelusa from accumulated jostling and disappointments
lots of junk
clothes
dust bunnies
dust
a stray toy
nothing but some light filfth
a home brewing kit
during the daytime boxes of photos and papers.
at night there are creatures with hands and teeth,
so my own hands and feet can never hang over the edges
dust bunnies
my dreams
the octopus of doubt
a paper bag full of masks
nothing
dust
clothes and shoes
under the bed is last night's dream
dust
postcards waiting to be sent
dust bears
I'm afraid to look. last time I did there were bunnies
memories
my socks
Old oil paintings I did,
a sleeping mask,
a bag of sex toys,
dust
