Two Inherent Deviations

 

  1. Italian in English Class

even if my mistake hovers over me

forms evil obstacles throughout my day

and ridicules me for having been deceived

even though I’ve been bombarded by a hailstorm of questions

flattered then beheld.

the moment I touched the woman’s muscular arm:

“we must speak English”, I said

so that the other annoyed students were relieved

 

  1. Abusive

was the man who cherished her in trickery

and hunted her down like an animal.

Held in contempt for love

succumbing to his fist

although she tried

 

to pull him up like a raggedy doll

and make him right.

Wasn’t her abuser like any abandoned animal she would have rescued?

 

Washed by sleep, she is forgiven.

she tugs at her hems

squeezing out the grief

as if it were some poisonous fluid

inherently present.
