PAD Day 27 - Heroes and Villains

  1. The “man”
    There he is
    the “man”
    no boy he
    pays his own
    bills with money
    he makes after school

    she flutters eyelashes
    without will
    just a girl dressed
    in a woman’s body

    Proudly permitting
    his heroic hands
    to roam stirring
    her blood

    Until it pounds
    in her ears
    and blocks
    the sense and
    sound of that
    first slap
    that splits her lip

  1. I have to admit, Pearl, that I didn't see that ending coming. Good job!
