The teacher

 

 …and a woman once taught me some painful truths.
…and how does a boy, who thinks himself a man,
deal with the searing pain of such branding?
dismissed with derision.
hell hath no fury.
…and why does he care?
but, he does.
needs a confessor.
seeks his redemption.
cursing his own emasculation
by hands perceived unfit.
sculpting justification,
he rides his high horse
and says nothing.

… and, a silent fool is none the wiser.
