in the fields of frivolousness

ghana in the kitchen at breakfast time and lunch time too
joking about eating off my plate again
(in reference to the times he was munching, unknowingly, on the apple slices i had cut and placed on plate
for myself)
emory and i arguing
(the fun/play kind of arguing)
over whose hand landed first
and who gets to take which cards
in the great rainy morning game
of slamwhich
still looking for my own language
for words like ‘missing’
but for now i’ll just say i felt you
in the fields of frivolousness today
