STONE REPLY
(10/11/17)

rude

moody

indifferent

a complete
asshole

call me
what
you will

I don't
have to answer
your questions

respond
to your
assertions

react
in any way
to anything
that you say

to anything
that you do

I never realized
the complete freedom
that I am afforded
by silence

by inaction

until I witnessed
how apoplectic
you become
by my reticence

I don't
have to play

standing here
completely quiet

immobile

until you
walk away
in digust

leaving me
to sleep soundly
another night
