i noticed it without trying,
five fingers flared out to me.
to a brilliant note, corralling,
“oh my god!” “come look!” “come see!”
this news that’s very important,
a great story? It must be!
my full attention, I gave it
as I listened intently.
it was a tale full of “oh my!”s
of “uh-huh...”s and of “hee-hee”s.
i’d tell you more about it, but
i just have a bad mem’ry.
