The trouble with monsters

The trouble with monsters
isn't the claws
or even the fangs.
The growling at night is
worse than hearing
someone snore.
I hate sweeping
shed scales from
underneath the bed.
Cleaning slime
from the closet floor
is worse.
Just once,
I wish they'd tear
the blanket from my face.
It couldn't be worse than
the spoor.

This one was incredibly difficult for me. Then I let myself get silly. That tends to be the key to a lot of good stuff for me.

It's perfect Cynthia. I can almost envision you sweeping the scales from beneath your bed.
Love you,
