Poem: Monsters


They resided under the bed
I knew they were there

Lift the bed’s apron … twice


They were there
Trust me

Never a threat
Until a finger to a light switch
So all went dark
And they were there

Run to the bed!
Tuck the blanket in fully around me
My only defense

Yet here I sit today
Having warded off the monsters
Hidden under my childhood bed

They were there
