a poem about a boy having night fantasies.


a boys thoughts at night


he hears the night woods

soft sounds scary sounds

different from day woods


lies in his cold bed

in his cold room

hears frozen trees

grinding against one another

in the cold night wind


a hard unpleasant sound


listens to faint sounds

far away in the hills

is it the sound of a wolf

or a coyote seeking a mate


an owl screeches in an old tree

is it wise

why are they known as wise

they just sit and turn

their heads almost totally around

and watch for mice


wonders if he could twist

his head almost 360 degrees

would he be wise


neighbors dogs start to bark

howling into the darkness

do they know something he does not

finally there is only a whimper


he hears a faint squeaking

listens as it gets louder


smiles realizing it is

his parents making

their night sounds


thinks someday

I will make my

own night sounds


takes his member

in his hand

and drifts off


sleep well world

sleep well
