There’s an ad on some Word Press posts saying,
‘Don’t Cover up Your Dark Spots’ and I thought,
Whoa, isn’t that what we’re supposed to do?
Keep our sins and prejudices in the attic,
not hang them out like dirty linen in public,
to hide our inner trolls, I know what the ad means.
I’m not stupid. Just got carried away by the metaphor.
And anyway I almost put up a post yesterday
Revealing a darker, nasty side of me but my therapist
Urged me not to put it up, that there are dark spots,
she said, that are best concealed.
