Five Senses of Intimidation

by Kimberly Bower

The sight of foes approaching

The sound of voices yelling

The touch of fists connecting

The taste of blood

The smell of fear

Intimidation.

Five Senses of Persecution

by Kimberly Bower

The smell of kerosene

The sound of matches striking

The sight of crosses burning

The taste of ash

The touch of death

Persecution.
