Make Something: Monster

some people’s demons breathe fire in their heads
small children fear monsters that are under their beds

an illness can seem like a hideous beast
a bad case of flu prompts a call to a priest

but the fears of a writer are not like any other
a page full of nothing makes a storyteller suffer

the poet whose stanzas do not come out right
grows tense as when something goes bump in the night
