Just ordinary dust bunnies
Line Count: 20

In the middle of the night,
when everyone in the house is asleep,
we come
tumbling out of Interdimensional portals concealed
under beds,
couches,
and love seats

Listen carefully to the noises
you attribute to the house settling;
it’s us
giving birth to a brood
that will overcome the combined forces
of the nations of your planet.

We come
from the darkness of space and time;
we are the armies of dust bunnies
lurking in the hidden corners of your houses,
waiting for your vacuum cleaners
to lose power
and the lights to go out.
