say it in anger
say it in frustration
in sadness
& sorrow
say it in exasperation
in amazement
& awe
say it for effect
for emphasis
say it to make yourself
for levity
for celebration
for kinship
say it
just to say it…
(i for one
am glad to live in an era
when it is–
at the least–
acceptable for a mom
to curse
like a sailor.)
