… but still i remain

one time, we were sitting in the car, windows down, as he waited for his deposit transaction to finish at the bank drive-through.

it was sunny, and a relaxing song i really enjoy came on the radio.  i closed my eyes to enjoy the sun on my face and the internal calm and joy elicited by the song, and i smiled and sang along lightly.

and he just didn’t get it.

and i knew he didn’t get me.

and i wondered how long it would take me to get out of there.

and i did nothing.
