Easily Offended (Day 27, 2017)

We are 27 days into National Poetry Writing Month.

Easily Offended

it wasn’t the swear words
that upset her
not just them, anyway
he could be funny and kind
but his mind traveled
to places she preferred 
to pretend did not exist
why push boundaries and buttons?
she did not see the offense she’d given him
the first time they met
at the office Christmas party
when he saw her in a 
snowman sweater 
worn unironically
and knew that they
were destined to be 
enemies
