Sticks and Stones

You need to vent, lecture

make her feel small

pounding away syllabic effusions

while wordless she says “sorry”

expecting the word to signify something

but your spewing evolves while

she waits until the eruption ends

wondering if it’s your voice you like

wondering if you hear your words

wondering if you mean the intent

wondering if you comprehend
