Zips

lying in my tent

listening

imagining

sounds outside

night creatures

rustling

exploring

curious eyes

waiting to pounce

rip me apart

 

turn on my phone

a bright light

comforting

Google logo

my portal

my contacts

web of wonders

safety in numbers

take me anywhere

away from here

 

unzip the door

shine the torch outside

see nothing

zip it closed

rest assured

for a little while

a car drives past

headlights casting

shadows thrown

what are they doing?

 

need a pee

unzip again

step out

behind a tree

and there above

the Milky Way

from left to right

jaw dropping

unexplainable

vast

 

back inside

temperature dropping

zip up

blanket over

try to find comfort

tiredness

shouldn’t be afraid

it’s only nature

doing its thing

turn off phone

 

darkness 

sleep

but what was that?

 

 

 

coyotes?

 

 

dogs?

 

 

 

no
