Those hills keep the secrets
Those skeletons shake in their graves
I could swear I heard it
A legend of a fiery beast that screams in the night
It sounds like a woman who is escaping, which is likely in those parts
It sounds like a panther the classic
A cougar
A wild hog
Or an unknown creature that only comes out after midnight
The myths, the legends
That night I pushed the boxes aside
I opened the window
It was louder and bigger
I shut it so fast I’m pretty sure the screen fell out
I ran back to the bed
And sank into stillness
