The Dog Bells Ring

My darkness is unsettled,

I toss.

I turn.


My eyes open.

Then close.

Then quickly open again.


Damn, the pups are out of their kennels.

The door dog chimes are ringing signifying one wants out.


I unhurriedly get out of our bed and step down the hallway towards the back door.

I glimpse both pups are in their kennels sleeping.


What rang the bells?

I get anxious.

I have been pondering about Dad a lot recently.


The what- I should have done.

The- why did I do that - reflections are tormenting me.


I wander around the house scrutinizing, turning lights on-

I am frightened.

As I step into the storage room, a heap of my partner's comic books slide to the floor.


My mind constructs the prospects of spirits.

Foolish, I don't accept that shit.


Life ends, and it is over.


Frig off freaky mind.

I get back into bed and leave the light on.
