Looking back

i wish we had been cooperative 

instead of competitive – apples and oranges fighting to  be heard

at a roadside fruit stand…

your piano recitals,

my poetry,

clashing  in a mismatched sock drawer

because i think…

if we had thought …

you could have played the notes

i could have sung the song…
