they greet me like old friends,
ivory hands gripping my
shoulders a little too tight
to be forgiving

i tell them that i'm sorry,
and they know what i mean,
their smiles fade and the black
holes on their faces start to furrow

and i explain that it's not
quite time, not yet
i still haven't worked up the guts
to let them out

but they've heard this spiel before,
and it's getting harder to
silence the rattling, a myriad of
skulls and ribs that i can no longer
hide
i don't have my secrets, my secrets have me
