Sue Johnson

witching hour

to the casual observer
we are just an ordinary family
clean white net curtains
no litter or weeds in the front garden

but do not be deceived

when night falls we are
the prowlers in the park
the whisper of scandal in the dark

we are the bringers of nightmares
the dream stealers

on pale mornings
you may see our shadows
slice the gloom
as we head home before sunrise
