Stepping on Dinosaurs


walking through the dark, anticipating clear passage,
yet, nothing hurts much worse than unexpected
midnight blocks and blunders...

going into the kitchen for a drink of water,
maybe an unplanned sandwich, and treat,
just something to eat - since you’re there

alas, before you even finish your trek,
you’ll be lucky not to break your neck,
on miniature versions of famous toys

tiny pointy dinosaurs litter the pitch floor,
apparently guarding the refrigerator door
meanwhile legos keep enjoying your toes
