And. Or. But. by Abigale Louise LeCavalier

Harsh words
only hold meaning
when someone is listening.

I listen a lot.

Fostering frustration
and the heat
of anxiety,
when adjectives and verbs impale me.

I consider myself a noun.

Not the appropriate
inappropriate pronoun.

Nor a conjunction,

It’s important to me;
knowing where I stand.

Even if it puts me
in the corner
I expertly
painted myself into.
