Bait

Negotiations, the man says at the table behind me
negotiations
and the other man says, Yes.
He looks away.
Not interested, I think
but tell me. Maybe I am.

  1. We took my mom out to lunch before her eye doctor appointment the other day. The whole time I was eavesdropping on the conversation at the table next to us. I thought of you. 🙂
    I love your mixed media image.

  2. Thank you. I’m glad to welcome you to my club of “informational listening”! And it is just amazing what people will say regardless of who is in hearing range. Is it?

  3. I finally decided it was a job interview lunch, but I could only hear the woman’s responses and not what the man (a dentist or something to do with dentistry) said. Now I think this will have to be a poem. 🙂
