(a poem)

A Scolding

I need to get better at taking criticism

Your mouth opens to scold me

and I climb right in;

building a home for myself

in your well-founded words;

wrapping my body

in the crease of your frown;

melting my edges

on the intensity of your breath;

all before

you even

utter a word.
