Demon/Hyena: It’s Only Fiction

The children talk books

and character and plot and movies

the female is old

you say

the female is fat

you say

the female is not pretty enough

you say

And the boys talk over you

but the girl looks at you like—

looks at you like—

 

what’s the word?

what’s that word?

 

It’s true

you don’t move

your mind she thinks

she’s better

than you better

than you because

she knows English

 

when they were little they were sweet

but you have seen the girl leap

carelessly onto the counter and boy faces

cloud

with contempt
