Standing on a Literary Legend’s Shoulders I ask and answer the question:
Do you know what I saw last night?
Do you know what I saw when I looked out my bedroom window
just after midnight when the night sky was full of darkness and the air heavy with cries of Nightjars and bats singing out to their prey?
Do you know what I saw
when I looked out my window and a terrible creature
with a broken face and a missing eye screamed at me from it’s nightmare
I saw my reflection in my window.
That’s what I saw.
