Part of the Act

My guilt’s an abusive party clown reluctant to leave. He lingers in the corner, reminding me as he drowns in boxed wine, spews profanities, buzzes kazoos and pops balloons, pelts me with broken crayons. Bare skin peaks from beneath his melting face as he shrieks my mistakes, until I’m sorry.
