Last Night

Last night, dear
      I saw you in my dream

You needed help
To get away from the guy
        you had been living with,
          he had your mouth in a tight grip

Released… now for the moment,
      You seemed to be in denial. 

Frustrated, I proceeded with an academic
lecture explaining the definitions of
“assault,” and, “assault and battery.”
