South

It sprawls,

overspilling

the chair onto the floor,

crumpled and creased like a slumped ghost,

the sheet.

Notice

the hood nearby:

tall, pointed, cotton white

and with two unwavering black holes

for eyes.

You start

to realise

that here in this town still

bedrooms hold secrets that whisper

and kill.
