A Ghoul (tanka #43), Passive (tanka #7)

Dreams covered in phlegm
shivering night, eyes pried shut
to keep out the ghouls
that dance outside your window
and scratch their eyes out back in

However, you move
position yourself again
like a sinner on
a ship of screaming shadows
lost at sea drowning daily
