Faux-Aegis Eyelids

muffled footsteps

heard through your pillow at night.

you wake, cold sweat (are those frightful tears?)

and roll from this grave

to check every orifice

in this gaping haunting collage of a room.

anxiety dissolves, melting like ice cream

onion layer portions at a time;

puddles remain, a nervy drink

energizes parched particles

in your chalky mouth

as you beckon sleep please return

before you think of more teeth

seeing shadows strung

through the window

like an action movie stunt

turned fatal accident.

you know

your faux-aegis eyelids

can’t protect you
