Daily Conversations

Every spec of dirt
Water spot
Twig on the lawn
Creates conversations.

She tsks and scowls
If some-
Thing
Is. Out. Of.
Place

A smudge on the window
…. Lint on the floor
Leaves…..
Blown
By the wind

Is it neglect?
No.
Just an oversight
Yet she can’t help pointing it out
Showing disapproval.

Yet
When asked…
She’s just making conversation

I will try
To not twist into knots
About things that are done
and those that are
not.

We will converse.
