Knife Play

Words are sharp knives
and some of us know how
to wield them best,
Like a jab in the underbelly,
you hit the mark just right
and someone’s sure to
bleed out onto your shoes.

I think it’s a learned trait
used to survive the trauma,
the childhood wounds,
eventually you don’t even
feel when it happens to you.
