head under covers,
holdign arm’s arm
keen to echos
murmurs of voices a far off.
watching scaling shadows crawl
engulfing heart, squeeze.
Reality check, imagination, please.
Insomniatic night dream,
trigger hand, palm place, perfect fit
playing out scenario
Soothing rational self sweet talk,
wisely pace the house on tiptoe.
timidly approaching foreign corners of the house,
freezing in window reflections,
Jack rabbit heart.
