CROAK THE COURIER
(5/30/15)


she looks
at me

she will
not like
what I have
to say

but informing
her
shouldn't change
the facts

I am merely
relaying
the truth
as I see it

her response

her outlook

from that point
on

are completely
up to her

her life
is her own
affair
after all

but she
will not
be happy

that much
I know

she senses
something amiss
already

my manner
and expression
have already caused
the vein
in her forehead
to rise

defeated
before
I begin

I submit
to her displeasure

I prepare
for her wrath
