"There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance."


At night,
Black skeletons dance

Atop piano monsters
With dull, white teeth,

Lacerate walls
With peeling skin,

And tap coded messages to the
Lonesome living in their beds.

The author's comments:
Written from the eyes of a child, in a way, because it evokes images of sadness, loneliness, and fear.

"Like an angel with two broken wings. Reach for the sky again. Like the devil, meant for better things. I will find my place on high"

this reminds me of being afraid of the dark at night when I was a child. How everything can  become a monster in the imagination, the piano, the branches. Cool.
