Failure? Never

I explode for you
Cascade of fireworks
Down comes the bathroom door
No crying alone, I say
We squeeze glumly around the cold toilet

On porcelain his knees my back
My arm flung over the seat
He cries alone just enough
Until I interrupt in giggles and laughter
Remember how you saved me
By your presence
And relieved there’s an allowance-
those served in love can return in service
