Bump in the Night

I ask your forgiveness. I am not a poet, it isn’t often that something like what you are about to experience comes over me. All I can say is I was thinking of the phrase Bump in the Night but a story just wasn’t coming with it. I had sounds and thoughts but nothing else. Well, in that whole mess we find a place that seems a bit unusual, at least for me at any rate.

Creek groan snap
Tarp over the woodpile

Baying hounds
Moon breaks horizon

Ba-dum ba-dum ba-dum
Heart beats faster

Shuffle click shuffle click
Shoes on pavement

Grave yard dirt
rotting flesh

vise like grip
chill embrace

searing pain rending tearing
