Evolution of Conversation, Days Later

I spent all that time

Making poetry about how I was going to be a better listener,

then, I didn’t hear you say you had to be somewhere at 6:00, so if

I wanted to get together to sing or chant, it would have to be early.

Thinking I had all the time in the world,

I finished my work and gave my dog a hair cut.

I went to R. and J.’s thinking you would be there soon.

When you didn’t show up, I was worried.

So, today, I was still thinking about what you said

when you came down from the mountain .

I was still mining it for all its gold

When I saw the thing about 6:00.

The irony struck me
