As dark settles in

Spring dusk comes later and later;

day slowly empties out of me and I wait--for something or someone--

maybe the monsters fumbling under the bed will finally reveal themselves

when dark settles in. I tie my pajama pants tight as if there are secrets

I refuse to loosen. The sky is all grays now--gray clouds dot

the gray sky. And still, I wait.
