Sunny Day Secret Monster

Hello, my sunny day secret monster
Back from forgotten shelves
Picked up from the dusty cobs
Into which the dirty mind delves

How’ve you been? Poised in the shadows
Pointy tail, pointy teeth, pointy forked tongue
Awash in a bath of slighting thoughts
Tempered when this man was young

Do you find this room a like
dirty clothes and rotten dishes
An island of refuse for our private refuge
Steeped in the tea of blistered belly fishes

Welcome, my sunny day secret monster
Of which piece shall I pay? loan?
For an hour? A year? Just a month you require?
But I know that which you truly own

Good-bye, my sunny day secret monster
I lark! I jest! Please, be not upset!
These knees are bruised and my elbows are bruised
Be kind to this wearied, wily pet
I know I’m yours; I can’t forget
Though you are mine, I am yours
forever in your debt.
