Tall sad tales

She explains the missing toe nail with the kitchen cabinet
Then the bruised arm with the bedroom door
Again, the black eye with the study window
I wonder what she’ll explain the bite mark on her chin with…
…the hungry dog?


  1. I like your biting, backhanded style. It's beautiful and refreshing. Reminds me of a little friend I have who'd accept no responsibility for anything. He'd walk into a wall and report that the "bumped him".

  2. Lol. I have a friend like that too! But I'm talking about a battered woman who makes excuses for her abusive partner...
