Waited All My Life

From the collection published in 2021, The Immediate and No Sooner.

Waited All My Life

took shelter
in a rotting house
that belongs
don’t know who
and I can’t believe my eyes
here’s a secret room

behind the
bookcase so of course
I enter
just avoid
falling through the floor I am
living out a dream

all right and
here’s more luck just look
that creepy
old portrait
its eyes follow me (Scream of
sheer terror pleasure)

  1. The kind of place you describe is the stuff of my dreams! I have always wanted to find a secret room. In my teens, I was a guide in a palace and I loved that I knew where the secret door was but did not love that there was a tapestry featuring a goat whose eyes followed me no matter where I was in the hallway.
