start the onslaught

i was in my old bed
the room was bathed in halflight
i scattered bird seed onto my carpet and they revealed themselves
first the budgies
then the mice
then the tarantula
then the stag beetle
then the 5ft jet-black anteater with a flappy puppet mouth and A&E embroidered on its forehead
who ate the stag beetle
he didnt suck it up he chomped it down an awful sound
i felt the gnashing in my bones
he had been in the wardrobe
