NOT REALLY THERE
by Jesse Glass

Placed in the hall at the top of the stair
Outside my parents' bedroom door
I watched the tall men who were not really there

Step without noise and with shadows for hair
Past my bed and across the floor.
There by myself at the top of the stair

I saw them all come and I saw them all go; softer
Than spiders from minute to hour.
I watched the tall men who were not really there

Descend from the attic like soldiers to where
At the base of the steps they turned round to climb more.
Sleeping alone at the top of the stair

All I could do was to wonder and stare
As from midnight till dawn they paced the cold floor.
They were busy--these men who were not really there.

While mother and father slept snug beyond care
(I could hear mother turn, I could hear father snore),
Placed in the hall at the top of the stair
I watched the tall men who were not really there.
