Thoughtful Secrets

He shoots

A flurry of words at her

So tangible

They ricochet around the room

Until they end with

A resounding “boom”.

 

She listens

Staring blankly

Responding only with her mind.

 

Put frankly,

She’s 10 steps ahead

Of the entire argument.

 

She sees right through him

All the points

That he raises

Are blunt.

 

Not responding

To this male cannon

Is her favor

But he just doesn’t know it,

Yet.
