Sunday Best

conversation disappears whatever
sparkling flourishes of phrase display
one's wit and brilliant grace of mind
evaporate amid distraction or the hearer's
own self-image and inadequate attention
why bother if it's not recorded can't be used
in a superior medium yet these are the
precious moments when you're actually there
face to face with the yearned-for other
speaking from the newly waking heart
in your Sunday best if anyone notices or cares
here is the chance to be yourself in words
gestures can't be seen on radio and video
emphasizes crooked teeth and personality
that's all it is you have to love it
