“The Thing in the Cave” / Memorable Fancies #1230

[“The cave downstairs … / And what / hangs out there” – Denise Levertov]

     We have a natural fear, fed by dozens of horror movies, of what might be lurking underground, in the basements of our own homes. We imagine the bloody crimes that may have been committed there years ago.

     And what might still be lurking there.

     Film-makers, however, are expert in putting us off the scent. The real monsters aren’t in our basements, where we can just block the door at night. – They’re in our bedrooms.

     When we’re there.
