She couldn’t say not one
word about anything
without being accused of trying
to start an argument
Discarded for seventeen years of
marriage just because
he’d rather believe that if
the problem wasn’t
discussed then it didn’t exist
And if he was
the problem he didn’t want
to be reminded of it
Seventeen years of trying to
fix the problem with
a problem and seventeen years
of silence
