All Over London

All Over London

“All over London”
—Geraldine McCarrghean
Peter Pan in Scarlet

I plumped up my pillow—
Getting ready to go to
Sleep once again

I no longer sank—
And wallowed in the
Dregs of wetdreams

I was much too old—
Nocturnal emissions
Were for Neverland

I put a pistol—
Under my pillow
Just in case

Capt. Hook—
Might show up
In a jealous rage
