she closed the door.
this information is sensitive.
not secret, certainly not top secret,
but still, a need to know basis.
I noticed that she has aged,
that her neck, once smooth and taut
as that of a dolphin slipping through water.
I can tell I'm getting older, too.
I am just behind her.
We resumed our discussion and
I wondered at why this topic is sensitive,
until I realized there was a failure and
no one wants to talk about it.
I always want to learn,
failures are the way.
She looks damn good, though,
and I'm five years behind her.
I'll look good, too.
I'll be doing some work on this.
I know I should be promoted.
