Leaving Space

wishbone breaks

evenly and

who gets the wish?

families split

down the middle

and who get to grow up?

the ( — ) denotes a placeholder for space

(not really, but possibly)

for silence.

a way to pause and review the void


I wish you would talk to me in fewer ellipses

and more truths.

wish you could ask questions instead

of making such statements.

how are you? what can we do?

what do you need?

speaking instead of screaming.

even a whisper, so the dashed silence has some time

to make its need heard.
