* weekend *
They will ask me
How was your weekend
And I will pause a moment
As if to savour joys past
As I tread through the outbursts
Emotionally charged and lethal
When we found ourselves again
In some warring grappling wrestle
Instead pick out time between
Saw a movie went for walks
Took children here and there
Had dinner with some old friends
Those instances of civility
When a truce was declared
When we appeared fully functioning
As a family close and dear
Even as we each listen for
The distant thunder which announces
Another storm is on its way.
