Revealing

Is it safe to ask? he asked

Ask what? she asked.

You know he said.

You’ve lost me there, she sighed.

~

She had hoped for something more direct;

straight-forward, clear

But what she heard, was what she feared

So with his faint words

He lost her there.

Expectant

First time grandmother-to-be

Already on edge

Awaits delivery

Wednesday?

No

Thursday?

No

She’s sitting at the window

It’s got to come today

She’s sits waiting patiently

She needs that replacement kettle

So she can have

A calming cup of tea

.

n.b. What a time for the old kettle to blow and the parcel service to screw up!

n.n.b. Fank the lawd, the kettle arrived.
