What Difference Would That Make - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I have known that person for many years.
I know what they do.
I know where they live.
And I know they drive.
But these days they don't have a car.

'Very interesting.
What kind of things do they like to do? '

I don't know.
I have never asked.

'Then how can you say,
You know that person? '

By what I've heard to know to be true.

'Oh.
So you have had those conversations? '

Conversations?
You mean to share and ask questions?
I've seen them around long enough.
Why would I waste time wanting to do that?

'To get to know them 'personally'.'

What difference would that make?
