day 192

A perverse person spreads
         strife,
   and a whisperer separates
         close friends.  Proverbs 16:28

slipping into
the booth while
         our best friend
         is on a call outside,
   Tattle begins
   to bandy on about
what they are (really!)
            saying
about us, hoping
   to split the desert
   with us when we
get into a huff.
