Bruising Body Insides

Bruising body insides
Battering stupid muscle
with the nastiest power I had
TKO'ing people speechless
Later I married a woman
who found my heel
fighting me by not fighting
gelding me with saintly silence
None of this was clear--
until she betrayed me truly
not with another man
(He was welcome to the outside of her)
But with my daughter
Drubbing me near death
with perfidy inside
If only that Mick had kicked that shit
out of my outsides
that day in Tawas
How different these insides would have been.
