_____________________________

you spit

hateful words in my face

like a baseball player spitting chew

_____

it doesn’t matter

to you

_____

sadist

you rape and smile

delighting

in locker room talk

about

that whore

you gave it to

____

and still

stains cling

sinking into bone

_____

you won’t leave it

alone

but rather

throw

angry stones

as if I were

a bird

with broken wings

_____

you laugh that I

can’t fly
