Operating as usual


She Stayed In The Car

He stopped by the store,
Seeking white thread
For his wife who loved to sew.
I explained to him that from
Ghost white to cream
There were shades galore.
He asked if he might take some
To his wife who was in the car.
I blinked twice or more
And then suggested that she
Come on into the store.
He said quite emphatically
That she would stay right there
For he had learned by experience
About financial danger here.
I smiled politely, handed him thread,
And reminded myself to thank the crew
That the store lived in a man’s head.
