Oh my god she gasped silently.
What did he do, now?
She shrunk back into her shell and turned away.
If she doesn’t see it, or acknowledge his actions with a reaction…
did it happen?
Deep inside she was touched, it wasn’t exactly a declaration of love,
far from it,
but she giggled as if it was.
the respect was reciprocal,
but this spectacle he made of himself
had little to do with her
and more with the frustration
so many others had.
We were trapped
without a visible way out.
Sometimes one had to shout, get loud
then do somersaults to explain the rationale.
However explanations weren’t on his mind this time.
