Passive Aggressive

I place periods at the end of 3 word text messages,
to give a sense of cold finality.
I want this piece of punctuation to send
the same sense of animosity
as the blank face he can’t see.

The women in my family
Have mastered passive aggression
Into a fine tipped spear.
But I do not want to hide behind a period.
I want to be fierce.
I want to be feared.
