Stir Your Spoon

last time i saw you we were in attendance at a funeral 
and people were saying how well you were coping, considering 

we are only family in name, and relation 

shall we talk about today’s weather 
because that’s what strangers do 

i want to move on to my next destination 
not watch you stir your spoon in a coffee 
and pretend we are interested in conversation.
