The Dark Thing

July 26, 2011
There is a dark thing
in the muck.
It is slimy smooth,
and black, like a
new leather sofa.
It creeps through
the thick ooze,
sloppy and cool.
It does not need to breathe.
Breath, is not necessary
for this creature,
this dark thing.
Yet it does breathe,
its huge sticky lungs
wheezing and billowing
as they exhale
great amounts of
breath, which
in the mud.
The dark thing
is resting.
It has slept,
a thick, moving
sleep, for a long time.
But now, the
dark thing has woken.
