realistically the space under my bed is very small so if a monster did in fact live there it would have to also be very small
it would be some kind of baby monster
i would have to look after it
The true horror: responsibility
I live beast days. I am a water hour.
At night my eyelids droop like forest and sky.
My love knows few words:
I like it in your blood."
Gottfried Benn, “Threat,” trans. Michael Hofmann, Poetry (March 2011)
