Something Tells Me

written by: Lee Dunn



Some say it's demons.
The real kind you exorcise.
They're in vogue now.
Drugs won't help.
We are too far away from our souls.
Why would a demon want little old me?
But, something tells me to get that gutting knife.
It's why I wear long sleeves in the summer.

Lee Dunn

Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has written columns for the Shelburne Free Press, and writes mainly on his personal blog at AreMyFeetOffTheGround.
