WHAT DID YOU (DO ) THERE?

There’s something there,
where, care
to look behind the sofa,
along the curtain rail,
under the Queen’s chair.

Care to feel your way
into the cupboard
it’s dark in there.
Since he’s come to stay
I keep clear.

But you’ve got claws
and pointed teeth
he wouldn’t dare
to pick a fight
with you.

And as a mere
surmise
a surprising thought
I ask
Might you be the “he”
who’s come to stay?
