I know you’d be great, he is saying, because
you try your best at everything you do.
I scrunch up one side of my face. Do I, though?
You don’t? Aways try your best?
No. I am laughing
but it’s true.
That’s a list I’d like to see. He's laughing now.
Digging a hole
Sewing a straight line
Backing out of the driveway
Editing someone else’s writing
(And this poem).
