Meaningful dialogue?

Sit there, get bombarded with a hail of words

Once they are soft and meaningful

They will be gathered to the breast

If they are hurtful

They will be scattered to the four winds

Utterances can be

Hurtful, hateful, despising, surprising

embracing, disgracing, enveloped, developed.

Fired from a Tommy-gun mouth

Words can be distasteful, disrespectful put downs.

Thoughts brought to mind relaxing, sitting pool-side

While other couples were not it appeared-

worried who was within ear shot.
