Watch your Language

Funny things words. These go-betweens, these utterances and scribbles upon which we hang so much; if you get my meaning!

WORD

Sorry

Pardon

What did you just say

One lobbed word didn’t

Go off inside my head

Like they usually do

Grenades

Loaded

Primed

To Detonate

Triggering neurons

Racing to connect

Me with you

One word

One embedded

In a context that

Gave no clue

I heard the word

Its not one I knew

So

What was it you said

Do I need it in my head

Best you say it again

Then explain what it means

To you and then we might

Examine its emotional context

Else you’ll leave me all perplexed
