The Magnificent Man by Ellena Edwards

We sit around the table

you at the Head

surrounded by your girls.

 

You turn on the tv

enamel fills your face

as she plates your food.

 

He appears on the screen

calling women animals

calling punishment for abortion.

 

You say he’s a monster

when her scars remain

tattooed across her vessel.

 

She will never admit it was you

who was wrong, is wrong.

 

I look at her and wish

begging her to release

becoming his

dangerous

fear.
