i am responsible for my own haunting

On days like this,
I am the house and
the ghost,
responsible for my own haunting.

My brain is a revolver
with, “Am I good enough?”
in every chamber.

So I turn into a factory that
only makes the word “yes”
and I say it until I can easily

Mistake it for the truth,
but my voice shakes
and the answer still sounds
like a question.
