Unable to Find A Soft Spot
of D.B.A.

I have penetrated nothing,
I have gotten no where

with tenderness, with gifts,
with all my goods and goodness

instead of accepted,
acceptance, I am met with resistance
with KEEP OUT, with bad dogs

a heart as hard as ever a heart was
a stone upon my plate, is my supper
is what I am served, is all she has to offer

a snake instead of me
is eating
my apple, my papaya, my plums
