You don't know me.
I'd come home, thrown down
the marriage papers,
tempted a lighter to their helpless faces,
drawn out an old tin with its promises rattling, just beyond the brass latch

The open, click, snap of tubes, jars, pencils
carving a new persona
more interesting, this antagonist

The slam of a car door. Heavy steps on gravel.

Confrontation.
