Lynching

0e466eda2884fa8551d6aaba0b9f9e79

my head was hurting

like a long loud scream

she hit a vein right away

the black wind blew

the relief was palpable

some men prefer

love on their haunches

I just steam on in

all suited up

the man of reason

I ply the trade

with ruthless charm

anticipating all objections

to the angles of my craft

it’s catch as catch can

and I’m ready for a fight

I never underestimate

the sincerity of a lynch mob

they have a job to do

and so do I

.
