I’m caught once again.
The tirade begins
A random word among so many
Latched upon as the breaking point.
What should be a quick and concise
Argument concerning my digression
Lasts hours, usually in public places
As I listen and believe my own corruption.
I am shattered, broken and silent.
I sit stunned, paralysed,
Each breathe an effort
Finally from exhaustion she quits
Says the last word
As randomly as it all began.
