What’s Most Important Is Noticing Moments Like This

it took
four tries
or maybe even
more than that to
get this poem
off with
the
tv blinking
useless images
and the pretention
of this need to
express
but
finally
some words
connect in useful
patterns while
Hannah
peels

potatoes for dinner.

i had
so many
important ideas
but when i offered to
help and it made
her smile
the
rest of
those things
didn’t matter as
much as i had thought
only such short
minutes be-
fore.
