Why are there demons terrorising me at 4am, blowing debris around that rattles and clatters pre-dawn, and where have they come from with their malevolent energy and tremendous strength? I wake with a start, a tightness in my chest and heart racing, to their nightly excursions: I hear them at the front, to the side tapping windows, and running over the backyard into fences and sheds, lifting and dropping the patio roof, pushing down branches that scratch the roof. My light switched on, these sounds recede, and my attention is drawn again to my books and notes close at hand.
