get over yourself

I understand that your threats are meant to make me feel


but when I watch you making them all I see is

a big baby

throwing a

bigger temper tantrum

and then

sucking his own thumb.

Just cause I won’t let





No matter how large the physical difference,

or however much damage might be done

you’ll always be smaller than me…

How could I ever take such a

desperate sight as you

    1. I had thought of the structure as expressing more of a journey than building a specific shape… the back and forth between two people over time.

  1. This is an excellent sentiment but I notice that its four times as long as your usual pithy epigrams! My challenge is to get it down to size!!!!!!!!!! I’m sure it will be improved by the very exercise of diminishment!
