TIME UTILIZATION

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

I time it out

to turn on a dime

 

I’m retrieving my clothes

from the dryer;

folding them;

piling into my hamper

 

Her load of wash

is completing spin cycle

 

Subtle winks

and a gentle nod

meet with a coy smile

 

She praises the print

on a T-shirt

as I fold it

 

I notice lace & silk

among her effects

but abstain from comment

 

some things, 

I have always been told,

are left unsaid

 

I fold my clothes

She loads her clothes

in the other dryer

 

I make a joke

about the weather

before retreating to my room

 

She laughs sweetly

& tells me I’m funny

in delightful Bengal accent

 

I murmur

a barely audible thank you

 

Hello and goodbye

until next time
