Make the Connection Mr. Obvious

Make the Connection Mr. Obvious

Have you talked to her lately?
You know,
that lady who birthed your children?
The one who sits beside you
when you're driving around town
paying bills, and banking.

You probably thought
it was just the speaker rattling
in your car-
that annoying, scratchy sound,
the one you just tune out
and think,
“I'll have to fix that someday.”

It's really no surprise
you didn't recognize
the sound.
It has been a long time
since you last
made the connection
between the movement of her mouth
and the stillness
that lies between you.
