Why the Dread?

It is only a family supper

with ex-in-laws.

What is the fear about?

She is a formidable woman

but that doesn’t mean you are not!

She can be blunt.

You like that

sometimes.

Other times she hurts you

without realizing what she did.

Can you tell her?

Maybe now

after all these years

though you know she still harbors bitterness

maybe the bridge can be crossed

one step at a time.
