the demons are real… by Ross Vassilev

red flower wilting
in a glass

on the white walls.

i remember
my confusion,

my rediscovery
of the beauty of nature.

the demons

sometimes they growl
at me in my sleep

i turn them off

i think of Penelope Cruz

of hippie chicks in 1969
before i was born.

the demons are quiet

biding their time

hiding somewhere
in the back of my head

like a tumor.
