How do you play this Game?
This destructive, soul-breaking Game?
This Game where the rules can change at any given moment?
Rock, paper, cutting words.
How do you react without reacting?
Stay silent when words need to be said?
Carefully bide your time to wait for them to unravel themselves when inside it burns
The sting of a bitchy tirade.
How do you deal with the impotence caused by someone with years of experience in the Game?
I have not played for years.
I didn’t ask to be dealt in this round.
It’s not my fault you need a victim.
