April PAD Challenge — Day One

April 1, 2015

Prompt: Write a resistance poem.

Snake Charmer

You sold your charms
on street corners
between the Shop-in-Stops
and liquor stores
laced your words with cocaine
your “c’mere baby”
and “you sho es fine, momma”
snorted up my ears

I was flattered once
by your come-ons
danced to your hip-hop groves
poured my heart out
over your whiskey-ladden blues
’til I tumbled with you
into week-old sheets
on the seedy side of town

I bore all for you
’til your fist
screamed against my cheek
a bloodied tirade of knees
ground into my back
your “shut up bitch!”
and “fuck you whore!”
etched into my mind

My tear-stained worth
now beaten into pleas–
how do I resist you?
