night or light

i.
Dreadful nightmares this afternoon
involving the body of the recently
deceased. What is this darkness,
this sickness? Are you rest /less or
does my mind mean to ruin memory?

ii.
Don't sleep during the day.
In truth, it makes no difference -
nothing keeps a monster away.
Night or light, it will follow the
crumbs you leave behind and
climb into your bed, your head.

iii.
stars shown in this section of ontario sky
all countless constellations that could not
equal my resolve to put this all behind me.
