Like You And I Were In A Marriage?
You say I have been harsh and critical,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Aloof and seem to be unreasonably embittered.
You also make claims I have been unapproachable,
And that my actions are more like a quitter.
Whenever you come to visit my home...
I sit with very little to exchange in conversation.
And my hospitality has begun to get 'edgy'...
As if I don't want to communicate in the sharing of,
Those topics you pick.
When was the last time you invited me,
To come to your home?
Or invited me out anywhere? '
I...uh...live in a...uh,
Neighborhood I don't particularly like.
I like your music.
The meals you cook are delicious.
Where else can I go,
To use a computer, watch anything I want on TV...
And not be disturbed by noisy neighbors.
Like you and I were in a marriage? '
Nothing like that.
Just good friends.
