Together

by Mark Chmiel

“So her mother died from a brain tumor?
Sure, I can spend some time with her”

“You’re spending too much time on Netflix?
Let’s read Mansfield Park, 30 minutes a night, whaddaya say?”

“Your friend is going in for surgery next week?
Give her this gatha, if and when the time is right…”

“You didn’t see this quarter-life crisis coming, now here it is?
Café V at 7, I’ll tell you of the mid-life crisis I saw coming”

“You don’t know when you’ll get back to El Salvador to see her?
Come on over, we can miss the missing together”
