CLOSET SHADOWS

The nightmares of the innocent

begin when the

closet doors

are left open,

and foul and hungry things

creep under the beds

and hide

in the corners.

The barrier to the netherworld

is shored up and reinforced

by closet doors.

Be vigilant

in their care and cleaning.

Keep them free of shadows

and they will leave,

and wait

until

a more opportune time.
