Regrettable, Gossip Overheard
Have you heard the banter of he said, she said, they said, what-
gossip in the vestibule; duty taken, final cut
as a wrestle match between butt out! and OMG, say what?
I battle from within; and though I try to fight it, the second wins.
"No, this can't be true- John Boy really is a girl?"
The women in their element gasp aloud, their noses curl
as I hide behind the paper, headline news- another day;
"I guess that makes him unisex," I hear the women say
wishing I'd listened to my first internal hunch
to mind my own business, let the ignorant eat their lunch.
