Vicious Monkeys

Skins

vicious monkeys

getting frisky

all elbows and tongues

shaven heads

and swastika smiles

wrong man

wrong place

the power of the knife

twists in the stomach

men must fight

cowards must flee

with the pulse

beating in my throat

blood pool coiling in my gut

I fled

never looked back

whoops of laughter

still ringing in my ears

    1. Thank you Lolita, so kind. It's easier if you are recanting real events and have an emotional attachment to the subject matter, no?

  3. Absolutely. You can only feel the real when you read


    Equally mad are those who run and hide in the beauty of the woods as those who leap in a mass street fight without a knife.
