Pocket Monsters

I was never afraid of monsters
in my closet
or under my bed.
I was afraid that the monsters
in my pocket would never be real.
I would never be their master.
I would never catch them all,
no matter how many I had.


  1. I like how you turned a childhood nightmare into a victory!
    You could turn this into a children’s picture book.

  2. This made me smile entirely too much. 🙂 Thank you for this!

  3. That’s a very real fear too. The stuff that differentiates us? or, your inner ‘freak’? however you call it. The monsters. I’d hate to lose mine.
