Shadows on a Wednesday

Angry silhouettes climb
Up my twisted stairs
They dance around and tremor
And make themselves heard
They touch precious ornaments, lobes
They change things up there
Shadow monster stealing
Things that belong to me up there
I see them, you don’t, but I do
Angry silhouettes running their
Shadowy hands all over my things
They make me feel bad and achey
Especially on a Wednesday
They change the things that happen
They change everything
Those shadows on a Wednesday
Eventual hemorrhage
He touches my spine.
