A Few Things I Feared as a Child


Misspellings on spelling tests.
My parents' deaths
from a car malfunction.
Internal combustion.
Dolls springing to life
and the butter knife
I kept by my bed
to lop off their heads
not working.
Demons lurking
in the dark.
Finding a shark
in the neighborhood pool.
Being stranded at school.
Damnation to hell
for summoning the devil
by mistake.
Drowning in a lake.
Trees not existing.
Myself not existing.
Thunderstorms.
Distant wars.
Hell under my feet.
Crossing the street.
Space.
