Poem Comments


She looked back

She looked back and saw that things were less bad than they are now

And she missed those days

She missed the corporate shlock and she missed the insincere plasticine smiles that pervaded the media more frequently back then because

she was familiar with it,

she was accustomed to it,

and it was less damaging and less toxic than what she has today.

She loves the decaying memories that pain her because they damage her less than the novelties that chew her up from the inside.

She loves the monsters of the past because

They are familiar friends.

And they hurt a lot less than the new monsters of today.

She misses the old monsters.

So the old monsters are sold back to her and the cycle continues.
