calm. calm. don’t say a word—
your attitude is insignificant,
and you are expected
to play nicely.

turmoil, thunder crashing,
alarms sound—
what the hell is she doing?
is she fucking crazy?
doesn’t she realize—

of course not.
you’re insane, or not really,
because you were fucking kidding,
you can’t have a problem.
no. of course not.

behave yourself.
you’re in control.

don’t say a word.
your discipline
will prove
your strength.
