A Flashback Reaction

When father and daughter had words
contracting muscles in my face
felt like worms crawling
under my skin

Daughter conceded, father was right,
muscles relaxed, back to normal,

to early youth

When I held my fingers in my ears
as mother and father conversed
in angry words, grating
on my nerves…
