The Inhabitants; The Players
The feathered thing wakes from its post in the rafters,
and glibs slick down the walls to my feet.
It lurches on beside me in silent laughter as I make my rounds,
walk the halls, check the locks, off with the switches, shut the blinds,
Me and the lights, we are heaving together in time – like a family.
