I heard her child saying to her

Robert said, “conversation was the stuff of life”

If I had more time I would discuss this with her

Stretch it out like salt water taffy

I wish she understood, conversations are great

But so is sex, perhaps better

Or what about a partner who makes you laugh,

Or washes the dishes, or rubs your feet

I am disbelieving of people who only talk

Who fill up the room with noise

Give me silence

Make me a drink

I’ll wash my glass after
