A Man’s communication complications –

Man laughed at woman
Woman lost for words
Baby cried for them both
Woman cursed man looking, at her, at baby
Baby looking at rattle, wonder at noises made – “cccchhhhrrrr, cccchhhhrrrr”
Man moved towards woman
Woman moved away from man
Baby dropped to floor, baby broken, rattle hand crushed
Man teeth chatter, Whoop!  Whoop!
Man choked woman’s smile out of her
Woman looking at cold baby, cold spread into her
“What’s wrong with him?!”, man, not baby
Man right, completed, done, finished job, Justice
Woman, Babies, latter couldn’t make sense of Him, former could, did, can’t
So came this end, His communication complications, zero
Peace Man.
