Bedtime for Bonzo
Meds lined in combo
pulled the blanket over:
Jets, Lions, and Broncos
Proudly from the pocket - its the cookie jar bounty
Num Num disregard
chocolate rookie card scouting

Smeared across american legion stats
mandatory reading from under the name of sanders

Wanna be a Tigger but really more of a piglet
Out for the sugar not feeling the golden ticket

In the transformer tape player stories had lapsed
the nightlight light faded outward to black
I cowered noticed the closet was open a crack
I was certain I had closed it so I know it's a trap

Got goose-bump prick-ely
the rickety floor and drafty window supplied the whistling score
little league lumber,
in the bunker i hunkered
wishing I was just a-sleeping slumbered under the covers

Door swung open
dropped the bat-
no Connie Mack
do you copy that?
won't be in a body bag
skated like a hockey match
downstairs sloppy grabbed keys off the hook
door slam up in the pontiac

Morning spent disarming booby trapped treats
dad found me sound asleep in the backseat

started building right when i woke
among materials:
wood, metal, bicycle spokes

Past breakfast, past lunch
hammered away
With mother wondering about the damage to date
Psych bills never shrunk
White pills weathered slumps
Young Zach is too bright for life's ill severed dumps

The sunset
right before dinner I finished
three horrific widgets with thickets; blades that could pivot
one in the closet
inside the mattress
in my dresser drawer next to my pajamas

Man was supper looking like it still coulda moved
i brushed vigorously after I was excused
the evening's reading was light
a kissed cheek to the tyke
closed my eyes and waited for the deep of the night

Again through the closet door
boxed with the shocking claws
Tripped over a tonka toy
clocked my concoction raw
I won't stop to pause
with the goblin gore
dragged the monster out
n left it on my poppa's floor
