Little Jack says Scary Men creep in

in the night.

They dress in black and when

they talk, they tell him “It’s alright.”

 

He says they scan the mirrors and closets and under his bed.

He says that when they find it, their eyes turn red.

I asked him what “it” is, but he swears that he can’t tell

It told him if he tattles, he’s going to straight to hell.
