The family directly across the street
doesn’t talk to us. Or anyone else much either.
They only say hello. This happened before
the last election actually happened when they
moved in from Texas they were an internet match
that much they said as well as some minimal
conversation about temperatures but yesterday
when I attempted once again it’s hard for me to give up
the idea that there has to be a Good Subject has to be
a way to talk yesterday when I said to the man of the house
that he’d done a nice job painting he painted his
house himself he said I don’t think so and that was that.
