An Unanticipated Argument
After a long meeting that followed a longer day, Susan P. and I approach Mr. J.
He says that our program is “out of compliance.” He won’t say how he knows, just that I should know. I check my anger multiple times as he double-talks—and insults—me.
After the meeting, I carry that checked anger home. Hold it through the night.
And bring it into the next day.
ignoring the need
to walk away
