Monsters

My feelings
seem to be
an inconvenience
to you.
I will
write them down,
conveniently,
for me
so they won’t
evaporate
into heartache
and nothing.

You see the
monsters
in my closet?
They are real to me.
You keep casting
longer shadows
instead of turning
on the light.

This record is skipping–
Can you hear it?
It keeps catching
at a worn groove–
Repeating one word
like a massacre,
and neither of us
know how to lift
the needle.
