The Joys of Lockdown

How long have I spent

with those dollar store spiderwebs

serenaded by the fearsome yells of third rate actors

clothed in thrift store costumes

of politicians

how long have I watched

life go by the cracked windows

of the hell house I have locked myself in

to keep myself safe from a world without

the mission of heaven is just down the road

if I could only leave my precious fear

that religion of my own invention

and take a step of faith

toward my divine calling

but being haunted feels familiar

so here I sit

surrounded by mechanical cackling

and ghosts covered with sheets that badly need mending

who needs Christmas

when everyday can be Halloween

every time I hear the house creak

it reminds me that I am living the dream
