About this item

Poetry. African & African American Studies.

Mercy

When the sow doesn't refuse them her sequence of teats.
When her swollen spotted body, bristles spearing mud

permits a dozen snouts burrowing beneath her-
unapologetic litter of grunts, hungry self-serving soldiers,
cacophonous squeals urging over, over.

Not to protect her face from their hooves,
but that she could crush them, we pen her in. Narrow.
Leave only enough room for her to lay down.

When she doesn't, in a quiet rage, slaughter them herself
she suffers each unrelenting mouth, she sates our wild expectations.
