Madwoman

That slap my little cousin received
did not originate from me, but I got accused
of the incident. The mother of the child stormed
into the bedroom and laid her claws on me;
I didn’t fight back. That madwoman took
her resentment out on teenage me
and left the house. No one came to my rescue;
everyone laughed in my face,
including the cousin who did the slapping.
