it was not truly surprising

to hear him say, “but, it’s just you, Rox…”

with just a hint of sheepish grin,

you don’t mind

if I don’t call for months,

okay, years…

if I don’t hold the door,

don’t really listen,

sit on your cat to teach him a lesson

you don’t mind, do you, Rox?

I mean, it’s just you!

why would I spend the whole day

you don’t mind being alone…

you take care of yourself…

nope, I’m not gonna start helping fix your door knobs

nope, I’m too tired to take a hike today

I know you think you need help, but you don’t

you can figure it out

gotta go

will call ya later


whatever, it’s only me…
