Working, What Else You Gonna Do?

An old acquaintance only reads
when he has to,
he tells me after I
told him, when he’d asked me
what I’d been doing lately,
I said I’d been writing.

He appeared perplexed not
sure what else to say, looking
over my shoulder at
the traffic on 6th Street,
“Well, I’m still down at the mill,”
he said.
