Pinhead’s lounging in the armchair. Dreams waiting by the stair
Pennywise is peeping through the curtains looking for children to scare
Marvin is arguing with the kitchen door while Arthur Dent makes a cup of tea.
Death has been hogging the remote for the satellite TV
The trunks in the hallway stopping Rincewind running out the door.
Patrick Bateman is using plastic sheeting to cover the dinning room floor
In the bathroom Norman Bates is playing with a knife
Eddies somewhere in the sitting room between here and the afterlife
Rats run beneath the floorboards heading for their lair
Sick boy is on the toilet reading a guide on childcare
Fingers caress broken spines. Faded letters tattooed down their backs
I brush aside trolls and hobbits and take a paperback
