a difference in personalities

when he walks into the room
he has questions, he has theories
he emerges with stories

the same room blooms for him
that she leaves cold, aloof

feeding the stray

upending the can of cat food in a china bowl
she set it on the steps
the cat came running with an open mouth


I was haranguing someone, a new father
arguing that time seems long to children
that half of life seems childhood
introduce them now to the riches of this world

he interpreted it to mean a full toy box

remember how
one day you were going to show them?
and now you could, but it doesn't matter?

the best revenge is no revenge
