Imagery of PerMANent Residence

All the
Horrible
Men still
Live inside
My brain.

They’re quiet
Tenants
Most
Of the time,

Though,

Occasionally,

They
Like to
Make
Themselves
Known

in me.

They
Will not
Be silenced.

It starts out
Slow

“Remember me?”

But soon,
They sprawl
And climb
Molesting
The spaces

They’ve
marked
In my lobes:

Scratching
At my flesh,

Overstaying
Their welcome,

Condemning
The place,

Before I can
Push them
Back
Again.

They only
Wanted for
Themselves
In me.

These are
All the men
I trusted.

I see,
now and now,
Again

That was
A fucking
Mistake.
