Creative: My Monsters by Peter Clarke

Silouettes After the Storm by J Swanstrom

I was at a loss

when it came to monsters,

nights terrified me

as a child;

the rattle of windows,

the rustle of leaves

from sweeping winds

and their dancing

on my window pane

backlit by street lamps.

I was asthmad so easily

by the toxic fright of it.

In truth, I was as safe

as the house I was in,

built by dad years before;

but early frights created

a never shored up self.
