The Subject of You

The little tyrant I take care of
asks after you
with some frequency.
Maybe she saw me looking
at one of the pics
I took surreptitiously
when you were busy with one of the thousand things
I’ve seen you do.

She wondered if I liked you
and I try to give her honest answers
to genuine questions.
Since then
the subject of you comes up
with wind-up regularity.
We’ve gotten to explore
issues of relationships
and gender issues
and mutual respect
and non-verbal communication.
I’m learning quite a bit.

She is very inquisitive
and very interested
in what you are like.
I’ve been happy to describe
as best I can.

I just hope the little tyrant
is not too disappointed
after what I have to tell her tomorrow.
