A Warm, Safe Haven (2) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

You tasted the bitterness and shame of a client rejecting
your every attempt in trying to help the uncouth, boorish
man using expletives when talking to women - such an old
criminal, misleading your company as to income, trying
to get away with swindling by insulting you

As you explain a great weight about your rising stress levels,
lifts from my heart - your fleeing life, going to bed earlier at
night, me wondering whether there could be a paramour, then
you explained about the crimes this man perpetrates, blacking
your name - I understood, glad it’s not an imbroglio

As you plan getting takeaways sending our official driver who
recently got his driver’s license to collect it, I smile
knowing our little world is sacred to you - you would
never endanger it in that way - your smiling face
represents a warm, safe haven!
