Early morning haiku

When moms beat daughters
For telling startling truths
Do they feel better

Lashes welt my skin
They’re unapologetic
They don’t hurt as much

You don’t remember
Yet I can never forget
Lies break the silence

I’m sure you worry
There’s a monster in the room
Groping your daughter

I have forgiven
The scent of you on my skin
What of mine on you

Try to touch my child
Wish a motherf***er would
Penis in the trash

I’d willingly serve
Life sentences with no tears
Just to protect
