By the Hour

so there we were
a simple cleaning woman (as at first I thought)
and a man of letters, a well-heeled bachelor
whose chambers had gone to pot
I'd hired her in to tidy and scrub
and that she did, like a tsunami
seeing her panting after doing the tub
I begged her to rest beside me
and soon I learned
she'd concepts, words, and a clever way
well above her station
as we whiled away the rest of the day
with conversation


  1. You can't judge people by what they do What you can find out in conversation Well written

  2. A thought about discrimination proven false with conversation. Lovely to discover.


  3. Engaging piece...The art of conversation is a skill of elegance, nuance and creative execution.Indeed!!
