Hurt Feelings

Your voice, like leaves blowing,
reminds me of raked piles and falling.
It hurts now that I'm older,
what's underneath
the hard ground
with its knobs of roots and bones
my hurt feelings.
Maybe in spring your voice will turn lilting
and something different will bloom.
But for now,
I'll let the worms eat your words for you.
