Creature of the Night

 

Transition from “normal”

The sun now hurts my eyes

The cycle has returned

I’m a creature of the night

 

My hair grows longer, fangs exposed

My thoughts become carnal

Hungry is my soul for darkness

I’m a creature of the night

 

The adjustment comes easily

In touch with my inner beast

Escaping into the blackness

I’m a creature of the night

 

Prowling the moonlit hours

Seeking the energy to survive

Not a phantom, but so very real

I’m a creature of the night

 

Shift work creates this rhythm

In synch with the moon’s phases

Howling all night in the boiler

I’m a creature of the night

 

While the world sleeps and dreams

I provide the pulsating power

Electrical currents needed 24/7

I’m a creature of the night
 

<><><>

I’m about to begin nightshift in the

recovery boiler tonight… 7 nights of

an altered rhythm… providing power

and recycled chemicals. HOWLLL!!!

<><><>

Written before my retirement
