"The Monster"

"The Monster"
Virgilio F. De leon Jr. MD

Standing in front of the mirror
For a moment your image wavers
You smile and it speaks to you
You blink and hope it goes away.

"What shall we do today?"
You ignore the question
"Should we murder or pillage or rape?"
You look at the date
"So you forgot? Such a shame."
You look away.
"It's the day you killed her silly."
You hope it goes away.

You open your eyes
It is just you
And you finally see the monster
It is just you.
