My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Writing Prompt #151 “Collage 19”
‘We stopped checking for monsters under the bed when we realized they were inside of us.’ Charles Darwin.
We stopped checking for monsters under the bed,
the sandman, and the bogeyman in the closet,
and searched elsewhere for our thrills instead:
in abandoned buildings,
pins in dolls.
we looked in the mirror
and realised the monsters
