Dinners Trials 

We went to dinner

with your parents,

you sat with your mother,

mumbling about your successes 

and brushing over mine. 

I listened, as ever,

not speaking, enjoying 

the pleasures of being

so foreign amongst such

confidence. 

You went on about

various performances you

were to create,

I spoke of things

I longed to write about. 

The night ended

as well as could be expected;

we went to bed in silence

and spoke,

only in silence.
