the bump in the night


Patient in his practice,

he waited for the ability to strike.

She derailed into madness

from the pure obsession.

Page by page,

and with a bat by the bed,

a girl from the Midwest curls with her cat,

pretending that psychopathy is a western disease.

I think you got him, Michelle.
