The Owner Of The House


She asked her husband, once, why he never read what she wrote

she asked her best friend

her sister

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

know who





and Sister

and best friend


and where they live  and sleep.
