• You start to feel
    Perplexed and delusional
    You start to hear
    Disconfigured sounds,
    Wind howling
    Bushes rustling
    Raccoons tipping over
    Garbage cans

    Bug-eyed owls hooting
    Crickets chirping
    Drunk drivers
    Getting into accidents
    Mosquitoes drinking
    People's blood
    Bats eating bugs
    Wolves stalking
    Their pray

    Only things seen,
    Moon and stars
    lighting the sky
    Fireflies and streetlights

    You start to dose
    Off into a
    Deep sleep,
    Awoken in the
    Morning by the
    Brush of a
    Squirrel's tail
