The Knocking by Justin Germino

The Knocking

Woken, startled

a slumber disturbed
shadow reality slipping
what was that sound heard
again token rapping 
dreamland discord
my body slips from comfort
icy floors sting toes
golem door gets closer
devious knocking persists
protective locks undone
door giving birth to solutions
the lone man stands there
eyes solemn with concern
in his hands a sealed note
with trepidation; extending hands
My mind reeling I tear open
consuming each word in angst
then gravity multiplies
this knocking served notice
that they were finally gone
