The Strange Companion
You gaze upon me where I sleep.
I feel the blankness of your blue eyes
speculating upon my face
from under their curtain of blonde hair.
You are sinister, my strange, anemic friend.
Your silence is a cat-like assault.
I struggle to life.
I do not feel safe.
Until you retreat to your Youtube account
and your perusal of Hemingway.
