Red Dragon Scars


Anger forgets fear,

Heats to almost-glowing…

And I, tho scared inside, 

Won’t tolerate the belittling

Served with screams 

Any longer. 

I lure him away from my young.

I will take this, not you. 

Red Dragon takes the bait

And relishes in the debauchery of it all.

Screams that no one can tame.

Screams that no one would believe.

Centimeters from my face,

Spewing vitriol and bad breath

Hot with whatever moisture

Lives within him. 

And I…

Shaking from fear and disbelief,

Go to console my child.

We can’t live like this, I tell her. 

Wide, scared eyes, filled with fear and disbelief look up to me…

What are you going to do, she asks.


God, help us. 

Show us.
