Mr. Freeze

They argue.
About small things.

Attitudes needing adjustments.
Tensions of the day.

Unreal expectations
“Why can’t you be…?”

Something the other is not.
Never will be.

A coolness forms.
Like an ice wall.

In some such way becomes real –

Mr. Freeze cooling it down.
Ice in his heart.

A silence filled with wanting to speak.
Neither will give way.

Until she looks at him with a softness he has seen nowhere else.
Will never see nowhere else.

And he melts.
