~Child’s Play ~
It waits for me night and day
swinging in its’ Big Ugly swing on a Monstrously Big Ugly porch
crying Big Ugly tears.
I run past.
A busy careful person steers clear of Monstrous messes.
The more I dodged my Big Ugly Monster the louder it sobbed
It conned me into scheming scary plans all day.
I pictured its’ Big Ugly death all night.
I tried to bypass my Monstrous blueprints with counterfeit prayers.
Still the night ruptured with Inhuman Wails.
It was Unbearable.
I understood .
I vaulted up the Monstrously Big porch
onto the Big Ugly swing.
My friendless friend rocked itself silent
I wrapped my shaking arms round it’s untouchable shape
And we began to swing
Embracing all its’ Ugliness I felt like singing!
Oh, I was afraid I’d cry if I did-
So we just swung and swung
through a quiet night
Me and my Big Ugly Monster.
