Monsters In My Closet

Monsters In My Closet  

I used to have monsters in my closet at night
Religion
Delusion
Obedience
Arrogance
Ignorance
So many learned demons
blending in with the timeless wallpaper and bowing shelves
like carelessly packed mementos of dry bloodless summers

Now they pry themselves off hanging hooks
and the swinging door speaks their cackle of devoured dreams
as they slip  out of their walk-in tomb
wearing the stench of forever
