A Haunting Kind of Day

haunting dan krall

Toothbrushes aren’t supposed to be haunted

I was surprised when mine spoke to me today…

I think it said “Nevermore”

But it may be have been

“Close the door”

Or “plaque for sure”

Margarine containers aren’t usually possessed,

Except for the lowchoesterollowfatnodairyno (taste) addedsalt

I have never read a case history where margarine yearned to go home or into the light..

And flying and flopping aren’t usually part of its morning routine.

Something odd is happening today.

My bus pass tried to paper cut me.

My desk drawer hissed “get out” but then whimpered when I slammed it shut.

I decided against even trying to eat my sandwich……

I’m keeping a wary eye on any birds outside.

And steadfastly refuse to listen to the voices in my crock pot.

TV? Forget about it.

Safely in bed, I shove some crackers underneath to placate the monsters.

I drift off, wondering if amazon sells holy water…..

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
