A Slam Poem

Aggression.


Shown all the time with no mercy.


You jump at me with all your might,


I dodge.


Mistake.


anger surges through your body,


you don't speak, but I know what you are thinking.


"Please don't" I beg.


You don't listen.


You leap towards me with all your might.


You make contact with my left cheek,


I feel no pain.


You've done this many times before,


I guess I'm used to it.


You start to turn away,


I sigh with relief, hoping it's over.


It isn't.


Suddenly you turn.


Eyes on me.


your hunger to make me hurt increasing

,
how dare I! how dare I!


What have I done this time?!


Did I look at you wrong?!


Did I breathe too loud?!


You pounce,


making contact with my right cheek.


Still...


no pain.


"What do I have to do to make you understand!" I scream,


slamming my laptop closed,


"I AM STUDYING!" I screech.


Our eyes meet.


Do you understand? I wonder.


No.


Because you are a ferret.
