Llamas on full blast

It took us a while
but eventually we laughed about it,
the moment when I couldn’t take
the bickering any more
and I knew I was about to yell
regrettable things
so I cranked the car stereo
loud enough that it made
the plastic dashboard shake
and the kids begged
for me to turn it down
but I refused for several long blocks,
not caring that it was a kid’s album
and a song about llamas,
just deeply grateful
for someone else’s voice
to be the storm.
