The other day,
I didn't want to vent to my wife;
I wanted to share something good,
but I wasn't sure what to call it.

(How sad we don't already
Have a catch phrase for doing that.)

"Can I...
Brim to you,"
I ventured.
But that didn't feel right.

"Can I revel with you,"
Didn't sound right either
At all.

"Can I exult to you,"
I finally tried
And felt satisfied.

She replied.

So I did.
Then she did.

It seemed to provide
Much more 
Than usually comes from venting,
Which we think will calm us down
Since we're "blowing off steam"
When aren't we really just
Re-inhaling it?
