He spoke,

She cringed,

His words falling across her back,

A strap,

made of syllables.

He spoke,

She faded a little,

Examining every utterance,

For signs of worthiness in his eyes,

Being that which is least offensive,

And hopefully that which is unscathed.

She was a that.

He spoke,

She died a little,

Shrank a little,

Became less luminescent,

Everyone noticed,

Nobody spoke.
