RDP Monday: DUENDE
She asked her husband, once, why he never read what she wrote
she asked her best friend
and her son
the same question.
” Because, ” her husband said
and her sister and best friend told her
her Son admitted
that it was bad enough to see the monsters
looking out from her eyes
and to hear the ghosts in her voice
and catch the Devil in her face
but the thought of seeing them
on a page
and in their hands
free of the house
where they live with me- under word and key
would mean that the ghosts and devils and monsters
loose and that the Ghosts and Devils and Monsters
and best friend
and where they live and sleep.

I was also inspired in part by this researcher – very interesting true story! https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/the-neuroscientist-who-discovered-he-was-a-psychopath-180947814/
Did you try his book or TED talk?
I saw him on a Science Chanel. I’m going to have to check that book out!
