The SON

The SON

Dazzling blue-gold sunlight gleaming

On caramel-soft skin.

Cuddle up close, Baby.

You’re going home soon.

Soon!

Golden sunlight warms

The pages of the

Photo album stuffed with your life

So far.

Dusk slivers the golden sky.

Croon that lullaby.

Sway and rock,

Rock and sway.

Sleep, Baby, sleep.

The dark is creeping in.

We should go.

Pack up his photo album.

Pack up his clothes.

You’re going home, Baby! Now!

With us.

The dark is stealing in.

Wait. What did you say?

She’s on the phone, crying?

She’s changed her mind?

Oh, Baby…

The dark is spreading.

We have to go.

Unpack his photo album.

Unpack his clothes.

Don’t even glance at the carseat,

Empty of him.

Darkness stealing in

The dark seizes the dwindling gold.

Drive. Drive. Drive.

Don’t talk.

Don’t look out the window.

Just

Cry.

The dark is here.
