A bully’s face

His face was red
and taut with rage
veins pulsing
like worms under his skin

a bully’s face

and then I looked closer
a head like a side of ham
wrapped in twine

and that was all it took
you think fear
will sit on your chest forever
but emotions can vanish
like mice
sliding into the cracks
of our minds
waiting for a quiet moment
to return.
