i understand

He walks in
looks at me
looks away
and behind
two thirds his height
a voice
“yabba yabba yabba, yabba
yak yak yak,
& she said….
so I said….
& then
he turned to me & said:
I turned to her
& I said….
yak yak yak,
yabba yabba yabba, yabba
what do you think?”
he nodded gravely
half smile
on thin pulled lips
looked at me again
and they left
her voice trailing away
still full tilt
with; “so I turned to her & said…”
with all this spinning
its easy to understand
why a good man can crack
I’m not saying
I agree
just that: I truly understand.
