Scrittura Saturday Poetry Prompt: Character Traits

Houston, TX | Medium format film (photo by author)

Your life is my commodity
my cat and mouse plaything
What I lend you benefits me
like fealty due, I am your King
Sit at my feet, bathe them
with your penitent tears
while I delight in giving little kicks
to your quite imperfect teeth
