Illustration of cats by Judith Clancy (from Toujours Provence by Peter Mayle, 1991)

we never
seem to
stop
and think
of the
repercussions
of everything
we say.

in our
pride,
in our
confusion
at mixed
signals;
in our
depression,
in our
respective
explosive rages;
in our
misplaced forlorn
loving
we say
we scream
we weep
we curse –
words we
end up
regretting
one way
or another
and sigh
as we
force ourselves
to part
ways.

i wish
someday
we could
talk
clear the
air
see with
clarity;
just talk
and mend
and heal.
