who gets the wish?
down the middle
and who get to grow up?
the ( — ) denotes a placeholder for space
(not really, but possibly)
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.
