The Argument

Right now,
what she said, what I said
is the size of a grizzly,
nine feet tall
with stiletto claws
swiping at my innards.
But if I can just inhale
and back slowly away,
time, like a sailboat, is waiting
for tomorrow's wind
to sweep me safely from this shore,
where I can stand on the deck, day by day,
watching that grizzly shrink
smaller and smaller
until it's only a mouse,
easily chased away.
