Cold steely blue eyed

Went to my favorite

‘Trader’

store

where I get my treats

and

more

there was this huge

steely cold blue eyed

checker

standing boldly

behind his

cash

register

he

gave me such an evil

stare

not much cheer

moved so arrogantly

I was prepared to fight

wasn’t scared

right then and

there

(I knew there was no way in

H  _  L  L

I could’ve won

that fist fight! He would’ve surely

beat my A _  S  S to a pulp!)

he

talked to me trite

I didn’t buckle at his glare

I figured

He was someone who had always been a bully

(probably, born one)

the vibes came off that way

(I always know my bullies when I see them…)

complete and fully

something ‘in him’

knew I had his number

(I had my ‘scanner for bully detection’ on!)

I knew he picked that up

with his ‘bully radar’

(bullies are very perceptive

about zooming in on and picking out their

wimpy fearful victims!)

I prepared myself

mentally and physically

for ‘whatever’ was to happen

I told him

‘I brought my own bags

and if that was the right thing

to do in this store’?

he replied

(I don’t remember exactly what he said

but this is close…)

‘however you want it, you tell me’

that had an underlying

arrogant and smart a _ sed remark to it

So,

I looked him straight in those

cold steely blue eyes

and said

‘OK, use mine if you want…’

I sensed we were enemies

I couldn’t understand why

I was ready

I didn’t flinch

I slid the card

paid for my stuff

finished my sample coffee

looked around for a trash can

and

out of the ‘blue’

he asked

me

softly

like a courteous

gentleman…

‘can I take that for you sir?’

it caught me off guard

I was floored

he actually talked respectfully

with different ‘vibes’

I gathered my senses

I replied

‘sure, thanks, I appreciate it’

A  N  D…

that was it

I faced a

cold

blue eyed

demon

without fear

(that devil I saw)

for the moment

had

disappeared

and I left that market

a better man

than I was

before I entered

that even a bully

can teach me

there

can be

a spark

of goodess

(in the midst)

of something

potentially

quite

‘bad’
