Venus and Perspective

He hadn’t talked to me all week. I am sure
it was my fault. But, Lord, I have justifications.

My neighbor recently gave me a synopsis
of Men are From Mars. I ought to have known

that he just needed a cave moment. But, he
hasn’t heard the synopsis that Women are

from Venus and that he could have at least
just acknowledged my existence. At least.

Late on Sunday night, after a week of mostly
silence toward me – after I estimated he had

had enough of his cave – my pent-up thoughts
spilled out. And today, at desk, my eyes and body

are heavy. But, that moment to just talk some
things out was heavenly. And, I thank God for

neighbors who take a moment to explain Mars
and Venus, and that Kindle eBooks are handy.
