Your Own Stories (Day 494)

just become 
quiet   a butterfly’s unfurling 
wings   your own stories
flutter within
listen   still as a snake 
about to shed her outgrown skin
do you hear the rustling
inside your walls   small
secrets   guests  some welcome 
some uninvited   nestling 
and settling in 
well-protected corners   notice
your narrator   is she trustworthy
how do you know
if what you hear is true
