sense of uneasiness felt upon returning home after dark

front door pushes open
kitchen light lit
knife block turned slightly out of place

are those crumbs on the carpet?
cream cheese on the rail?
the faint waft of onion in the hall?

i want to throw back that bedspread
and reveal a harmless pillow,
but the pit in my stomach┬ásays i shouldn’t
