Cold Tight Dead Stick Rage
An account of a sharing at a Men’s Anger Group

She invited me over
despite the restraining order
I went cause I’m bound to that woman
like a brick is to mortar

I went along the back way
didn’t want nobody to see
cause we’d raised so many rows (pronounced rowels) before
the neighbors would recognize me

Through the backdoor we kissed like friends
had I suffered enough had I made amends
I felt like I licked it
like I’d made a real change
like I’d never act out again
in a cold tight dead stick rage

She made a fine dinner
we were happy at the table
we laughed at our past fights
like they was only in a fable

we ate desert
and we drank some wine
I’d not felt this at home
for a very long time

She took a call
gave it all her attention
sounded like another guy
with a sexual intention

She laughed and talked
while I stewed in place
till the tightness took me
and I punched her in the face

I can still hear her screaming
through the rising of my bile
the red blood running down
the white bathroom tile

I left there and I came right here
to tell you fellows what we have to fear

Through the backdoor we kissed like friends
had I suffered enough had I made amends
I felt like I licked it
like I’d made a real change
like I’d never act out again
in a cold tight dead stick rage

We all looked down and sighed
as the cops came in
he looked so helpless
as they handcuffed him

and to this day
I think of this visceral story
a constant reminder
of how things can get stormy

and I wonder about that
fragile little catch
that stills my anger
when I get the itch

Can’t take much credit
for what the angels gave
the shut down valve that
grants me a save

but
Through the backdoor he kissed like friends
had he suffered enough had he made amends
He felt like he licked it
like he’d made a real change
like he’d never act out again
in a cold tight dead stick rage
