Haunting your chapel

If only we could edit
the poem of your body
excise all of the extraneous
words it has been lined with
over the years having turned
the days against joy's grain
going through your goose;
now an agonizing swan song
growing noisy of poltergeists
their running-with-scissors
cutting commentary in the background
occupying foundation's crawl space
taking up residence in closets
hallways, and even under the bed
—you still have time to evict them
from your head using a red pen
utilizing said scalpel with surgical
precision to purify your chapel
of Past's demons clawing away
at Present's ribcage for attention
