Night Watch

Go Dog Go Café


I am a dweller

of deep night hours

sleepless in a house of slumbers

very walls seem to breathe

slow rhythmic inhalations

followed by exhalations

occasional rumbles


as this sanctuary

settles its strong bones

self-appointed shepherd

over flock of souls

gathered gently into my keeping

cradled in my arms

I protect them from demons

jealous dream-stealers

that prey in the darkness

I hum restless spirits

back into deep sleep
