Step

It’s why
I didn’t squash
the horsefly,
merely walked back
inside.
 
It’s why
I captured the rat,
freed it in the field,
let the vultures hold jury.
 
It’s why
I stepped over
the snake.
 
It’s why
when you said that,
sure, I was taken aback. But more,
I knew I would not take it lightly.
 
I’ve seen things
you pretend you’re above.
 
I’ve done things
that would re-curl your hair.
 
I’ve sat on the outside,
spied on the glass menagerie,
seen how easily it shatters.
 
Come talk to me
when you’ve got something meaningful to say.
 
Come talk to me
when you remember you’re human.
 
In the meantime,
watch me step over you.
