she makes me feel like
a guest in my own head
please, pull up a chair, make yourself at home
– wait, isn’t this my mind? –
distracting me with lively conversation
how are the kids? they’re fine, but-
how’s my job? it’s busy, thanks for asking, but-
oh, I guess I would like some tea, sure, but-
where is it? I can make it I suppose,
but I don’t know my way around here, can you tell me where to find it?
