Lament of the Horror Movie Marathon

by Kirsty Logan

It's almost dawn and you're still out

While I'm in our bed eating yesterday's pizza

And chain-watching pirated foreign horror films

Until I'm too scared to get up and leave the bedroom

To brush my teeth or wash my face or check the doors are locked.

Hurry home, my love! 

The ghosts are lurking

And I need to pee.
