Vacancy

smile_by_Propaganda_Panda

So,
at lunch today you
turn TV on and stay engaged
tête-à-tête with your sister;
you’re saying something
I shouldn’t ignore

Or,
I’m misreading the
lines – hey, perhaps it
means I’m merely not
a current centre
of attention

Explained,
when you leave to
play euchre on the patio,
TV beaming vacantly –
yes, I get the feeling
clearly
