ACT’s of Violence

title credit: Stevan Barfuss

If you could see the loveliness of her slender fingers

combined with the gentle playfulness of her heart

you, too would wonder

who is being served by her weeping soul

living in terror

of a test.

that we could have instead spent the last two hours

playing music




If the product is zero

then at least one of the factors must be zero

and I know

that the pointless factor

is NOT her.

If you accidentally subtract

when you are trying to add

How do you get back to your intended solution?

So I’m over here

helping her study for a zero sum test

With hopes that my investment is

adding double

To the self worth

the system accidentally subtracted

by telling her the test

was the thing of value.
