For you, animal
By Julie Dickinson

I reach for you animal.
If only you reached for me.

I fight for you animal.
If only your fought back, to flee.

I write for you animal.
If only you made marks we understood.

I mop the floor for you animal.
If only this did not end in blood.

I try for you animal.
If only to hone my voice, my truth.

Your eyes gaze at me animal.
Reduced to object, I see the proof.

I cry for you animal.
And hope you know we fight.

I will never give up animal.
Standing firm against your plight.
