stung

Sometimes miscommunication causes people to react in unexpected ways. This poem is about that.

stung

 

ouch! your anger stings me:
quick and hot and sharp
reminds me of encountering
an agitated wasp

the bite is unexpected
it takes me by surprise
it happens when I fail to see
the world through azure eyes
