Reciprocal Damages

killer-820017_1920

By Michael Marrotti

I expressed myself
through violence
when words
ceased to be

Left a mark
that would fade
in time
but left a lasting
impression

I discovered regret
in a jail cell
showed remorse
through restitution

It cost me
more than I
could afford

There’s a price
to pay for teaching
assholes the rules
of proper etiquette
