Porcelain Lullaby

Chiming softly beside
briskly cutting a swath through the stupor
I whisper
while the pet skeletons in your closet
turn into an army

Goodnight, sleep tight
don’t let the nightmares in tonight
take all the time you want
take all the time you will ever need

She tells me to go away,
she can’t sleep with me watching
and I would if I could
but I can’t sleep at all
and there’s nothing else to do.
