I had ten small fingers
that could barely wrap my mother’s wrist,
but curled like a frown
into a tiny fist.

I struck my father,
I struck my father.
It was just a game
when he hit me in the ribs,
when he hit me in the ribs.
And that was the last time life
ever pulled a punch on me.


from The Water's Gonna Rise, released September 12, 2012
