The Assault

words that wound
pounce upon my tender psyche
no construction in this criticism
all pomposity and righteousness

donning Kevlar
venturing out unarmed
offering exposed flesh
to the critic’s knife

peeling back tender layers
uncovering the visceral within
pity this poem-maker
her compulsive folly

to assume her words
could inspire
