hitting it

she laughs out of the blue

and only he knows why

she interrupts his drivel

and he smiles at her charm

she mimics his music

and he enjoys her voice

he loudly rearranges the dishwasher

and she quietly adds the forgotten soap

he’s not interested in talking

and she encourages his two wheel therapy

he places a hand on her waist in passing

and she acknowledges it with hers

they sit at the banquet

quietly roasting the rich people

they exchange glances at the grocery

to avoid the friend on aisle 3

they crochet and write in silence

comfortable in the mutual presence

and both know

they belong in the same boat
