#126 – Woman Fifty Three

bloodshot

“her eyes are animals”

bloodshot with fury.

 

they hiss, growl

and foam at the mouth.

 

she sees revenge.

 

a story that exacts

the same violence

perpetrated upon

women by men.

rampant,

without consequence,

through history

and now,

now,

now.

 

she closes her red eyes.

is this the beginning or is this the end?
