So many safe fights
Words exchanged at more than arms length

So many arguments resolved with mutual silence
Stillness that hung in the air for hours

So many veiled threats
A guillotine pulled into place-tethered with frayed rope

So many, so often, so cruel
Even a child’s ears became deaf to the words

So long ago I can honestly say
I cannot recall who won
