South Fork Poetry: ‘He Said, She Said’

"If you're angry," he said,
"dig deep for the source."
Should I dance on Daddy's grave?

"Relief for rage," she said,
"is boxing, karate, running.
Take revenge on terra firma."

"Try writing," he said.
"It's good therapy."
"Punch pillows," she said.

Weighing the choices,
I take up the mighty pen.
Writing, righting my life . . .

With an illusive stab, or two.
