Lampyris noctiluca

Hide just inside
a perfect halo

red plastic flashlight
beams back

Captain Nemo
Frodo  Aslan  Artax

Sheets shift
a cotton cave

to keep him
secluded   under cover

away
from prying eyes

insulated from Go to sleep!
and Turn the light off!

and Don’t make me come up there
Goddamn it!


Stay here
20,000 leagues

worlds
wardrobes away

here
at the top of the stairs
