You're a Monster

It's not on my to-do list.

Sit and just listen-
to the silence
between unclean ears.

Don't touch anyhting-
not even the music box
that waits in the corner.

That dark shadow
behind the door,
isn't the coat hanger.

The sound is alive
and the creeking stairs,
and the growling-

and it isn't your stomach.

The End
