190 monsters

In quiet suburbs,
Hidden, in clear view,
Dwell monsters.

Designer clothes
Designer toys
Designer tastes

A child in the cupboard,
A meth lab in the attic,
A body in the basement.

Isolated, Insulated, Incomplete.

Doing whatever it takes
To make ends meet.

Apparent normality
Shielding the depth
Of depravity.

Dead hearts and souls don't keep friends.
