Day Nineteen #NaPoWriMo 2016

Ghosts
The norm is for the events to be rinsed off;
the sounding board a mere minute from
being thoroughly bleached into
a sanitary and selective amnesia.
Sweeping under rugs just means
taking risks; not a smidgen available:
no recall, no evidence.

Scrub furiously and leave a strong scent,
overwhelming but unable to cover the stench;
attempting to disguise the exact age
of all the ugly words. Never laid to rest:
ready to mock and haunt with invisible chains.
