Monsters

We talk of monsters-

Of things inhumane.

Unnatural, evil creatures

Lurking in the dark.

 

We talk of monsters-

Of things unlike us.

Twisted, unreal beasts-

Part of another world.

 

We talk of monsters-

As if they aren’t real.

Imagined, conceived visions-

figurative illusions.

 

We talk of monsters-

But we are the monsters:

The evil, twisted demons

That haunt crowded streets,

Daylit neighborhoods

And supermarket checkout lines.
