untitled: the monkeys in the wallpaper are oddly silent

the monkeys in the wallpaper are oddly silent
slipping among shadows of jungle palms in the night
as we sleep unaware under our canopied beds
and bed becomes forest floor under leaf canopy
and the forest softly creeps into the dusky space

as we sleep unaware under our canopied beds
dream of dawn and a bright sunny day soon to arrive
and the forest softly creeps into this dusky space
slipping among shadows of jungle palms in the night:
the monkeys in the wallpaper are oddly silent
