“You’re not what we expected,”

Her eyes boring through

like a heat ray melting outer layers,

seeking to find what was lost

in her own mind, as I stood there.

I looked at her tense body 

as she hurled her stones

against the imagined Great Wall

she had already constructed,

when she first came to see me

only to find it wasn’t what she expected

not hardened stone or rock

but flesh and bone and full of doubt

yet, unexpectedly, not flinching

before the assault
