Threats

What will you do to me? What can you do to me? When you talk to me (or talk at me) and you say you are going to do this and that, I swallow hard. No, I am not afraid. I look at you in the eye and I don’t shake. Your words mean nothing to me. They’re just stupid sounds coming out of your mouth. You are seeing what can scare me, what can have me run out the door. You leave to go meet whoever it is you go meet and I stay behind with the cockroaches. It’s has been me and the cockroaches for a long time. At night, when I try to rest, I get the same nightmare. I am out there or in here and they’re coming to get me.
