Unexpected Resonance

Always these dresses. The give of a voice
which sounds like it has never needed
to hurry. You say darlin like my aunt
says darlin, a cheat code for safety.
This is frustrating; you aren’t
particularly safe to be around.
If you had to guess which
adjectives I’d apply to you
I doubt ‘safe’
would touch
the top 50.
