all i could recall

26 May

bright as night sang the boogie man

all i could recall was a red rubber suit

with a shiny silver chrome mask

but i couldn’t give chase

for the air was sticky and gross

they wanted to know the details

how the flies flew about the head

how the earth moved crazy with every step

all i could recall were the suction cups

but i couldn’t say exactly where

in proximity to the lake

these kinds of things can rob me of my sight

all i could recall were the screams

as the street lamps came on one by one

red rubber suits all in a line

shiny bright silvery chrome masks

gleaming in the lamp light
