shades of me

©2023 michael raven

crabbed hands scrabble
scratching skritching
across the table, things
going bump at night
in this house

pent up spiders
arthritic stiff things
seeking to pull over
skullcap and ink
--ritual objects

now it's time to sleep
forgetting history
and crawling back
from dusty memories
