she said
this time, don’t tell them anything
like what? I asked
not a thing, nothing,
look, you tell these people
things they don’t know
then they get upset
& you…
you become the bad person
for telling them things that
they really oughta know
so they feel stupid because
they don’t know
ok, I said
I’ll try
but if I have to sit & listen
to nonsense about stuff on tv
bad politics or look at their holiday snaps
she was trying
I got that
but if i was to be here on a leash
my enthusiasm
which wasn’t strong anyway
was waning
can I at least have a little fun
& gossip about who’s doing who?
she looked at the stars, sighed long
I guess it was going to be a long night
for both of us
