Just Once

John Tzikas

Jillís ugly story tidbits
Oleg never carries earplugs
Just once could she try shutting-up
Just once could he try listening

Jillís ill-received musings
Ugly words in a notebook
Story lined the trashcan
Tidbits for the next fight

Just once can he have a good excuse
Just once could she laud the effort

Oleg and his late arrivals
Never did it go unpunished
Carries his own blanket for the sofa
Earplugs are a must for all flights

Jillís unkempt spiral tear- sheets
Oleg never comes earlier
Just once can she overlook this
Just once can he not overlook her
