Devastated

The most emphatic conversation
I ever heard
Happened in a language I don’t understand
Outside my door.

I was devastated not to know
If it was a love not loved
A life that’s wasted
A bill not paid
A sandwich not eaten.

It sounded like
The words a heart most wants to say
At two oh one on a Monday
Perhaps a piece of ice unbroken
On a lake I wish to disturb.

Perhaps they were telling a dog
Not to make
On the street
Outside my house.
