the tension snapped in two,
the deliberate force of hands
breaking under the pressure,
creating friction, any way

to return - words are fluid
entities, falling through
tongues, swallowing the saliva
that flies out uncontrollably

choking on bitterness that makes
hands wrap around throat,
strands of hair pulled out
one by one, transparent like

bluntness baffling
in delivery, thrush of
fragmented profanity
deaf to the deceived
