Poem: Not Now

There’s a question about this space here,
underneath what I told you.

It’s easier when there’s a distraction--
A pumpkin or a silly toy will do.

I walked home today and they were talking as I passed,
he looked annoyed and I felt relief.

She said it was the equivalent
of leaving your gun out on the table.
