Goodnight

It’s quiet tonight

as I sit in my armchair and write

behind me the door to the garden is open

but I do not sneak a look

would that I had closed the door

and pulled the curtains across earlier

for then I could pretend

that the zombies ambling along from side to side

were in someone else’s garden

and not waiting to suck my brains

when I close up for the night
