April’s PAD — Day Twenty-seven

April 27, 2014

prompt: write a monster poem


Just Clownin’ Around

Fat white face, toothy grin
you sit by day on my sister’s bed
innocent and dumbstruck
I carefully walk past you
taking wide-angled steps
as your eyes follow my every move
At last I escape
down the stairs and out the door
During the day I forget you
go on about my normal routine
shy kid with a book up my nose
When daylight is exhausted
I return to my room and you are gone
I frantically search under beds
dresser drawers and the closet
no sign — perhaps I am safe?
Still in fear, I climb into bed
and shake my feet ’til I fall asleep
Suddenly a noise awakens me
I sit up in the bed
covers pulled up to my chin
and search the blackness of the room
I whisper through tears,
Please don’t be there, please!
Slowly I turn my head to the right
eyes closed, holding my breath
As I open my eyes, I let out a scream!
You are there! You are there!
Fat white faced, big toothy grin
mop of red hair — you sit on my rocker
with the moonlight streaming in
I pull the blanket over my head
crying, crying, crying
And from across the room
sister is laughing
