SMALL TALK
(9/29/11)


you don't
really care
about
my day

my job

my family

you're
not really interested
in my opinion
concerning
news

sports

weather

the totality
of my existence
stands here
in silence

all
that I want
from you
lays
on the counter

let's not
recite
those tired
lines

just take
my money

say
"thank you"

or not

and I'll
be gone
