21. Once

Once
he broke a telephone.

It wasn’t enough just to slam down the receiver –
he slammed it down 3 or 4 times
then yanked the cord from the wall,
lifted the phone above his head
holding it high in one hand
then
with all the strength he could muster
smashed it against the ground.

This happened
in less than a minute’s time
more than a decade ago.
