Three Helpful Sentences: A Prompt from Monday Free Write Night with Ana

do they have to whole sentences
calling her by name gets her attention
and is helpful as she does a full body smile
that reverberates and reflects from all of us
generating a thousandfold increase in happiness in the world.
You mean the world to me, vaguely stated
as you look away doesn't cut it,
but asking me if I want to share your spaghetti
is enormously useful, my mouth waters
just writing this, or
telling me you'll run out to the store
to get more milk so I can make yogurt
for us,
or I'll drive you to DIA so we can talk
uninterrupted for 20 minutes, just think
of all the meaningful sentences
we can say to each other.
