Offense 1

This draft is part of a series I started after walking on the UT campus and seeing a person carrying a sign that said "Sometimes Being Offended is Very Healthy For You."

Offense 1

Sometimes being offended
is very healthy for you
when the insult triggers
a catharsis that
leaves you sobbing
until you have leaded
all the toxins.
Or when an attack
shatters the mirror of
your reflection and
you can no longer
gaze inward but are
required to walk
out the door and
into the world.
