what she's having

who’s counting

six times in the course of a conversation
overheard at the sandwich shop
a woman exclaimed o my god
which is more often
than I’ve encountered that phrase
in my several courtships and marriages

so much is in the presentation
of sandwiches and things

I really like this! I like the understated tone and matter-of-fact voice.
