Subject(s): Guilt

The bull lunges at you!
Run, do not look back,
your hands, your mind vacant
with fear!

You make a stand,
whirl, and with hands on hips
lean towards the bull's eyes.

The animal wavers, snorts
and slows to a trot,
shaking his horns from side to side.
Still at a distance,
he turns away
to nibble grass.

But mind moved by his jaws,
he charges blindly,
once more to feel your eyes,
and lowers his head to the grass
at your feet.
