the ‘cuffs

just in case
you were thinking of
trying it on
after all this time,
I’ve got news for you,
mister. my man’s
just itching
to take you down.
he’s got a detailed plan
for what he would do
if he ever caught you
making a move. he
told me how
he’d give you the
business, in thrilling
detail. go ahead,
make his day.

but you won’t. you
never did before, and
I don’t see how
now is any different.
I’m almost disappointed
because something in me
wants to see a good fight.
